My first blog post and it happens to be inspired by a secret obsession...LEGOS!!! I A few Saturdays ago I was home with my son who had several lego sets in progress on the living room floor. I was building too, of course, but I got tired of tripping over blocks and decided to research Lego tables online. I found a few that were all the primary colors and did not suit my space or were too small with very few bins for storage or none. 7:00 PM inspiration struck and with only 2 hours left before closing, we raced to the stores. First Ikea then Toys R Us for the lego plates. I took the best elements from the tables I saw. I decided to limit the color scheme and made sure it was large with a shelf for bins. By 1 A.M. he had a new lego table that looked great in my living room too! I'm super happy with this project!
This is also available in my shop. Made to order.
WHAT YOU NEED:
Ikea List- Lack Table 25x22x18", Metal towel rack 22" plus screws, Magnetic Strip, 4 metal spice canisters, Hanging buckets Green and white. (Optional) 4 VARIERA Box, white 13x9" and 2 9x6" 4 Green Handles.
6 10x10" Lego Base Plates (Blue & Green) TOOLS: Drill, Wood Glue, Crazy Glue, Screws, Ruler, Marker,
- Follow assembly instructions of the table and magnetic strip then attach the towel rod with screws.
- I recommend using wood glue on both the back of the lego base plates and table.
- Its very important NOT to push the plates together to dry. For Accurate spacing, use blocks to connect the plates. Let glue dry over night.
- Attach the Ikea plastic handles to Large White Boxes with Crazy glue. Be sure to measure so that each handle is in same place on all bins.
