She Cut 2 Holes In A Table Top And Transformed It Into Something Cool For Her Son’s Room

LEGOs are one of the most iconic brand names when it comes to toys and can be found in most homes with children. Since 1949, this popular product has become well-loved by children and adults alike. The interlocking bricks come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, making their finished products virtually limitless. This simple, timeless form of entertainment is still as prominent in contemporary homes as it was decades ago.
As much fun as it is to build and create anything you want from LEGOs, it can be quite a hassle to clean them up. Children tend to leave stray pieces of these toy bricks lying around the house, and it can be incredibly painful to step on one. Instead of constantly being on edge because of the landmine that is your house, Sarah from the blog A Little of This, A Little of That has created an ingenious LEGO station for her son. “It took about one day of me stepping on teeny-tiny pieces to decide I had to do something to organize it all,” she wrote in her post.

What You’ll Need:

  • IKEA Ingo dining table
  • IKEA Trofast buckets (medium size)
  • Jigsaw
  • Drill with spade bit
  • Sandpaper
  • Spray paint
  • Clear sealant

The first step was to put together the IKEA table.

Then, determine how many buckets you want to incorporate into the table. Sarah wanted two, side by side and horizontally. She measured the length and width of the buckets and marked the placements on the table.

She drew a diagram of the layout and dimensions, like so:

Now, it’s time to cut out the rectangles in the table.

She used a spade drill bit to make the holes in the upper corners of the table.

Then, she used a jigsaw to cut out the rectangles, using the lines that she had drawn for guidance.

Here is the table with the two rectangles cut out. She then sanded the edges.

Sarah wanted a different finish on her table, so she spray-painted it before covering it with a non-yellowing sealant.

Now, simply place the bins into the holes. All the LEGO pieces can be neatly stored in there.

The perfect place for some quality LEGO time without getting pieces of them all over the house!

To finish off the play station, Sarah bought some 15×15 gray baseplates that she glued to the edge of the table. For the length of the Ingo table, she used three baseplates.

All it needs is some superglue.

And here they are, securely adhered to the table.

Sarah’s son absolutely adores his LEGO station. Many ideas have been turned into fantastic creations right on top of the baseplates.
