Kate Create's Lego Table



My little guy just loves to play with Lego’s. He creates small little towns and villages that end up all over the house.

We had been looking at purchasing a Lego table for the past few months. This would allow him to keep his creations all in ONE location.


After looking online at the outrageous prices they wanted. Not to mention the style and design of the table. I was on a mission to make one.
Then last week at Goodwill I spotted the perfect table. It was low to the ground, had rounded corners {for safety} and was super heavy. So for $9.54 we took it home.
It has been so cold here {around 28* for a high} I was afraid it was too cold to paint. We brought the table in to warm up and I took all our space heaters out to the garage. It worked, but all along I kept wondering if I was going to blow our house up with the fumes and space heaters.
I trimmed and glued 4 sheets of these to the top of the table. We already had one sheet but had to purchase the other three at $14.95 each. I am sure you can look on eBay for cheaper ones.
It still lacks a nice sized basket for underneath and a few coats of poloy. {when it gets warmer}.
But it turned out great and fits in well with the rest of the playroom.

  1. I love this! Great job! BTW I saw a Lego table a long time ago on a blog (don't know which one) and they used felt because they didn't have the Lego sheets that you show. I think yours looks so great in the room.

  2. This was a great idea, Kate! My son is grown up now, but something like this would have really come in handy.

  3. This looks amazing! Lego tables ARE so expensive and never look even close to as nice as this one! I will be keeping my eyes open as I scour my local thrift shops!

  26. That looks much more stylish and substantial, and it doesn't have a "toy" feel. Very well done.
