I saw other LEGO table hacks of this on another site but it was too colorful, very small and would not fit my home decor. I made a modern LEGO table in a clean, simple design. It has bins that I’ve added with custom handles for a lot of storage.
This table is all IKEA elements except for the LEGO plates on top.
It’s very important NOT to push the plates together to dry. For accurate spacing, use LEGO blocks to connect the plates. Let glue dry overnight.
Step 3: LEGO brick storage
Attach the IKEA plastic handles to large white boxes with KrazyGlue. Be sure to measure so that each handle is in same place on all bins. Fill them up and insert all the bins into the shelf below the table top. You can choose to sort and organize your LEGO bricks according to color or type or size. Your kid can pull out the bins and start building their LEGO dreams!
