LEGO is one of the brands most iconic when we talk about toys and can be found in the majority of households with children. Since 1949, this product has come to like both children and adults alike.
The blocks of “bricks” come in all shapes, sizes and colors, so that their uses are virtually limitless. This simple form of entertainment continues to be so common now in homes with contemporary as what it was decades ago.
Play with the LEGO pieces is fun, especially when we started to build and to give free rein to our imagination, but then comes the time of cleaning and can get to be a chaos. The children tend to leave loose scraps of these bricks toy all over the house, and it is very painful to step on one.
Instead of always being at the limit due to the “mines” that are there in your house, Sarah, from the blog A Little of This, has created a nifty station LEGO for your child. “It took Me about one day stepping on pieces of LEGO to decide that something had to organise everything”, wrote Sarah.
What you’ll need to transform your table from IKEA:
-Dining room table IKEA Ingo
-Containers and Cubes (medium size) IKEA Trofast
-Drill with a spade bit
-Spray paint and glue transparent
The first step was to mount the table from IKEA.
Then, dial the number of cubes that you want to incorporate in the table. Sarah wanted two, one next to the other horizontally. He measured the length and width of the cubes and marked the locations on the table.
Drew a map of the distribution and the dimensions, like so:
Now is the time to cut the table.
She used a spade bit to make the holes in the upper corners of the table.
Then used a saw to cut the rectangles using the lines that were drawn to have an orientation.
Here is the table with the two rectangles cut out. Then sandpaper the edges.
Sarah wanted a finish different on the table, so he painted it with spray before covering it with a glue transparent.
Now, you only have to place the containers or buckets into the holes. All the LEGO pieces can be stored neatly in these buckets.
It’s the perfect place to spend a while playing with the LEGO pieces without having them scattered all over the house!
To finish off this great game table, Sarah bought a few plates of LEGO of dimensions 15×15 and a grey hit on the edge of the table.
All you need is a little glue.
And here they are, firmly attached to the table.
The son of Sarah adores his table of LEGO. As you can see in the picture has left some of his creations more fun and creative over the board, gray was installed to his mother in this handy table.
