Toy storage idea: A SNIGLAR LEGO tray

I dismantled the changing table and used it as a LEGO tray to house our ever growing LEGO brick collection. It also fits amazingly well under our IKEA Ektorp sofa.

How we made our upcycled LEGO tray

All you need to do is remove the legs from the SNIGLAR changing table. That will leave you with 2 trays which are perfect for containing LEGO.

The LEGO tray is even better at sliding away under the sofa at the end of the day. Out of sight, out of mind.

I also considered making a road or track tray using wallpaper offcuts or just painting directly onto the base board.

There is a lot of scope to make a variety of play trays but for now they are doing a brilliant job of keeping the LEGO at bay!
