Lego Table

After seeing Kari’s table on Ucreate HERE, I knew what my 9 year old would be getting for Christmas.  I loved how she used green for land and blue for water.  My son has already built some cool bridges across land. 

I headed to Ikea for a small table and was thrilled to find this side table for $7.99!  And bonus, because it’s light enough for Mr. Zippy to move around himself.

I had the green one ready to buy and decided last minute that black would be more practical—if the edges get worn, nothing a black sharpie can’t fix!DSC_0068

I used e6000 like she did, and 10”x10” plates, which are $5.99 at Toys-R-Us.  Funny that one plate nearly equals the cost for the table itself!DSC_0075

He was very excited.  All he asked for from Santa was the Percy Jackson movie.  So when this was there too, he said, “I didn’t ask for it, but it’s even better than what I asked for!”

And now he can have a little more space to create his Lego Masterpieces.

  1. SO awesome!!! I'm definitely going to have to make one - once we have a playroom it can go in. Their room is already too squished. :)
