I made this Lego table out of a glass top coffee table. The kind that you could display collectibles. This was found at one of the Jersey Shore yard sales, once again! See, I told you I find the greatest pieces there.
This piece has a drawer as long as the table itself. Perfect for storage of all the little pieces of Legos.
DIY LEGO TABLE
I personalized this for my little great-nephew.
This is how it started out. I took the glass out and had the hubster cut a 1/4″ piece of plywood to fit perfectly in the open area. (Sorry, no photo of that.) Look at that drawer! Lots and lots of Legos for my nephew! Now I know what gifts to get him for the next 10-years!
It was scrubbed cleaned with Dawn Platinum liquid soap, for some reason it had a lot of black yuck on it. I guess I would too if I were just sitting in the road waiting for someone to pick me up to create a new beginning with it.
As you can see, I painted this gray to coordinate the Lego mats. How cool is the raceway? The table has plenty of room to build with hundreds of lego pieces. Plus, the drawer opens at either end! The orange really pops with this table. I also distressed it a little with some 220 grit, so it will stand up to my rough-n-tough nephew. It was then topped with some Polyvine, a favorite top coat of mine. I think he looks like a Harold!
This is a piece that will stand the test of time, lasting my nephew many years of play-time with his family and friends. Say hello to ‘Harold’!
Do it with purpose!
