Homemade Lego Table
My boys are constantly playing with Lego's and they want to keep there creations in a place that won't be ruined so after seeing my brother in laws table they made for their son, we thought this would be a perfect birthday present. This is easy to make and affordable!
1 used coffee table
4 large green base plates (10 inches by 10 inches)
Directions: Find a used table. We got a used table from our local thrift store which cost us $15. This was a really sturdy table with a few scratches. Then I went to the lego.com store and bought four large green base plates which were 4.99 each. I cleaned the table off, which included scraping off gum which had been stuck to the bottom of the table. Yuck! Then I glued with regular wood glue which worked but I think gorilla glue would work because it's much thicker. Be sure not to put too much glue which will seep around the edges and sides. Wallah there you have a table which will be used over and over. My boys have a labyrinth maze they created yesterday that they were pretty excited about.
