Are you tired of stepping on legos? Well, me too! I remember seeing a picture of a Lego table a few years ago, and ever since I’ve always wanted to make one.
I’m probably like many other parents of young children, I have a love-hate relationship with these small colorful building blocks. Really love how they stimulate creativity, learning skills and of course hours of fun! And unlike many other plastic toys, they’re practically unbreakable (really love that!).
The flip side to Lego, unfortunately, is that they’re SMALL, and have a tendency to take over any kids room floor.
And in the middle of the night when your kid’s asking for some water, you typically step on one of them (I’ve done this more than once, and it’s so annoying! I KNOW)
But, let’s keep it positive! Lego’s are great, and kids love them. So what’s the solution to our problem? Of course! We can make our own Lego table! It’s a super simple, fast and easy DIY project.
Instead of building the Lego masterpieces on the floor, you can now build them on the Lego table. And for storage, this table gives you lots of storage space underneath. Use different sizes plastic bins for storing lego blocks and you’ll always have them near by for easy reach when playing.
Want to make your own DIY Lego table?
What you’ll need:
Ikea lack table
Double sided tape
LEGO City Town T-Junction and Curve Plate 7281 Building Kit x 3
LEGO City Town Straight and Crossroad Plate 7280 Building Kit
LEGO Base 32 x 32 Stud Building Plate 10 x 10 Inch Platform, Green
LEGO Classic Gray Baseplate 48×48 Studs x 2
How to make it:
If the table is used, give it a good wash and dry it completely
Lay out the Lego plates so the roads turn they way you like them.
Attach some double-sided tape underneath the Lego plates ( I used just a little strip on each the 4 sides of the plate)
Attach the Lego plates to the table
DONE! That’s how easy you can make your own DIY Lego table!
Wanna save some money? (of course, you do!)check to see if you can buy this table used. If the table top is ugly and has lots of marks on it, doesn’t really matter since you’re gonna cover it anyway.
To save yourself a lot of headaches, be sure to check while you’re attaching the plates to the table, that you’re placing them accurate and straight. You can use a classic Lego block to check.
This is IMPORTANT, if the plates aren’t placed right, then the blocks won’t fit on the plate edges. It’s easier to get this right straight away, then having to do it all over again.. you’ve been warned!
My son really loves his Lego table. And he uses it every day, making all kinds of Lego masterpieces.
This was such a fun project and I really loved how quick and easy it was, I finished the Lego table in less than 1 hour.Why don’t you try making one yourself?
Guaranteed hours and hours of fun for both small and grown-up Lego lovers.

Do you have kids that would love a Lego Bedroom?
I really wanted to create a cool Scandinavian inspired Lego bedroom for my son. Have a look at how my sons Lego Bedroom turned out, here.
I really hope you liked this post, I sure had a great time making the Lego table!
