Lego Heartlake Table & storage.

heartlake My daughter has really ‘gotten into’ the Lego Friends.  In our home they could be found everywhere, bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, totes, drawers, etc.

After she bought the Heart Lake Lego mat,  I decided enough was enough…..and resigned myself to the fact this isn’t a short lived phase.  Since they will be with us for a while, we should organize and centralize. So we made a ‘Lego Table’ for them.

We made the table tall enough for totes to easily slide under it and I used grooved trim on each end so she can insert instructions while assembling new Lego kits.

It was a very easy project made from 2×4’s and plywood.  Instead of the mat, large Lego plates can be used and easily secured to the table with construction adhesive.

I also liked this Lego Playhouse http://www.ikeahackers.net/2012/04/lego-playhouse.html -but made my daughter’s Lego table a height at which she could comfortably sit  while building.
