So the kids and I needed a Lego table in order for me to vacuum without worrying if I needed to open the vacuum cleaner to find some accidentally sucked up, has to be that specific part, Lego piece.

Measure where everything need to go. I donned my husbands biker jacket and helmet and dangerously used a grinder to cut out the centre. I don’t recommend this. This is the only part I had to cut myself, the rest was all purchased in standard sizes. The legs was 1 large piece of lumber which your local hardware will cut to 4 equal parts. At this point its a good idea to keep your kids height and the chairs they will be sitting on in mind.

Paint

Paint top and legs. Attach legs using a combination of cold glue and nails. Drop the large plastic container in the centre. Attach the four plastic containers with 4 L shaped pieces of wood under the table. I used wood I guess they make crates from.

playing

Completed table. Ok, so  I’m not very good at taking pictures and adding instructions yet. Next time will be better. Hours of quiet play and using their imagination.

storage

Duplo and Lego Chima Figurines in a container under the table. Extra storage under the table, 2 plastice containers on both sides – tools, wheels and chassis, weapons, and men. The only thing I still need to add is wheels under the legs to move it around the house easily, we just carry it now to wherever the kids want it.

built

Some of the things rebuilt since the completion of the Lego table.
