DIY Lego Table

If you’ve been reading along lately, you’ll know we’re kind of eating, breathing, and sleeping Legos around here right now…  Little Crafter is totally obsessed with them, so we’re busy planning for his Lego-themed birthday, not to mention the fact that I think he registered for just about every Lego set Target carries. 

Hubby and I wanted to get him a nice Lego table as a birthday gift, but no matter how hard we looked, we couldn’t find what we had in mind.  The closest thing we could find was about $70, and it only had one of the 10×10″ pads on it, right in the center.  Around the edge, it was smooth and made to look like roads, which I guess was cool in its own right, but we really wanted the whole surface to be Lego pads so he could build on the whole thing.

So, we decided to make our own.  First, we bought this simple Parsons Table from Walmart.  It says online that it costs $18, but it was $13 in our store.  It was also the easiest assembly project I’ve ever done!

Then, I sent hubby to the Lego store on his lunch break to get four of the Lego pads.  They were a perfect fit since the tabletop is 20×20″.
I painted the tabletop with Mod Podge, lined up the pads, and pressed them down.  Then, I lifted the corners gently and squirted superglue around the edges of each one.

That’s all there is to it!  I think it’s the easiest project I’ve attempted in awhile!    Especially compared to what I’ve got in the works for him for Christmas…And the total cost was just $35, instead of $70!

Happy Crafting!

    1. BTW all this lego stuff just made me remember, there’s a giant Lego store in Water Tower Place about 15 minutes away from where we live, and every time we go downtown to go shopping my husband always has to stop at the Lego store “just to look around”. 🙂 He’s going to be so happy one day if we have boys so he can buy Legos on the pretense that they’re for the kids!

  1. Making these for Christmas presents for my kids. Doing a Duplo and a regular one, although the Duplo base won’t fit as nicely. Also, the tables really are the easiest thing ever to assemble! Love it!
