Turn an Old TV Table Into a Fun Place for Legos
Its fun to find old furniture on the curb and give it a whole new life! I found this TV table in a pile of stuff my friend was getting rid off and had to have it.
The table was in a really poor shape - very beaten up and also a fair share of mold!
Needless to say, it had to get a good clean and sanitization. More details on that in my blog post.
I also gave the entire table a decent sanding for good measure.
I started by adding a rail on one end that wrapper around a bit to the adjoining ends. The rail was made by 1x2s and joined using wood screws and glue.
That was followed by painting the entire table. I chose a plain white so that the rest of the colors could pop.
I cut up lego base plates to fit in the space and attached them. I decided to add a little message at the top of the table where it holds a lego.
I simply printed it out and traced it onto the table then came back and painted the letters.
There you are - a portable lego table.
It is so fun to have a space for my daughter's legos. The bonus is that once she is done, you can just fold it and put it away.
