Bulky Lego sets are great but are almost certainly a headache to organize, store and keep off the floor. So making a DIY Lego table that requires no carpentry or construction skills sounds like a great idea for any family who loves this special game.

Blogger Amanda Peterson, of the Wei Family, Share an idea for a DIY Lego table consisting of storage carts covered in a tall Lego board in 2012.

In the original post, Peterson wrote that she saw the DIY Lego table idea in the now-defunct Disney Family Fun magazine. webpage. Three plastic storage towers are used to hold the bricks and also serve as the base for a large board covered in Lego baseboards. The middle storage tower can fold back when you’re ready to sit at the table and the low stools form the seating.

Peterson also printed and pasted pictures of the different Lego blocks that belong in each storage drawer so her kids would have an easy guide for putting the pieces away and keeping them organized. She said the table top can be flipped onto its non-Lego side to use as a flat desk. Four years after she first posted About the Table, Peterson mentioned in the comments section that her device is still in regular use at home.

“Surprisingly, a table made of plastic drawers and a shelf holds up very well,” she says. I wrote. “My kids play with it every day and we move it around the house—upstairs, downstairs, bedrooms, etc. They still flip the top over to use it as a desk.”
