Impressive DIY Lego Table

Sarah is a stay at home mom of three amazing children, if like her children you have a large collection of Legos, you might wanna create a Lego Table like she did. Well done Sarah, this is a great and creative idea.

Supplies Needed

  • IKEA Ingo Dining Table
  • IKEA Trofast buckets (she got the medium sized ones)
  • Jigsaw
  • Drill with spade bit
  • Sandpaper
  • Spray Paint
  • Clear Sealant
    How To

    First step-assemble that table!

    She carefully measured out where on the table she wanted the buckets. She used a straight-edged level to make sure the rectangles were perfect.

    Each rectangle is 15.75" across, and 10.25 inch tall
    I measured in 4" from the side of the table
    I measured 2.25" from the top of the table. 

    Use your spade drill bit (you can buy one at any hardware store) to make a hole, up near one of the corners.  This is how you will start your cut with the jigsaw.

    Next, use your jigsaw to cut out the rectangles, following the lines you previously drew.  It's ok if they are not exact!
    Here are the rectangles, pre-sanding, and painting.
     If you aren't a huge fan of the pine look, you can spray it in white.

    Drop in the bins,  and fill with Legos!
    (those bins hold A TON of Legos)

    Thanks Sarah for your creative and amazing work!
