So when I came across this idea I fell out of my chair! No, but what a great idea for his child who likes to play LEGO. Here are some ideas for making your own Lego table.
1. Make a table for Lego and storage
This idea comes to us from the excellent blog: A Little of This, A Little of That where many DIY ideas are presented to us.
You can take exactly this idea and therefore use a table bought at IKEA or even use an old table that you have at home to transform it into a table and storage for Lego.
Here is the table model used for this first Lego table:
Here is the plan to make the holes for the 2 storage bins:
Of course, depending on the size of your storage bins and your table, you can adjust the size of the holes or even make a single large hole to store all the LEGO blocks.
Here is a photo that shows what it looks like after the holes are made:
All that’s missing is the paint as a finish to apply to the table and to glue the LEGO pads as in the image below.

2. Other ideas for a Lego table and storage

Here is another IKEA transformation idea to make a table and storage space for your children’s Lego bricks. Once again I have this same piece of furniture in my eldest’s bedroom. Really simple, quick and easy as an idea!
3. Bonus: a suitcase to carry the LEGO blocks ?
Before you leave here is another great idea for making a small LEGO transport kit.
Your child can thus transport the LEGOs in the car and thus bring them more easily during a visit to the grandparents for example. Of course you can use a bigger suitcase so you can bring even more Lego blocks.
