Coffee Table to Lego Table Makeover

LegoTable

I have been so excited for my boys to get old enough to really get into Lego’s!  We’ve had an old coffee table in the playroom that I knew would be perfect to transform once the boys were ready, so a few weeks ago (before baby Dylan’s arrival) we decided to put it together!

We referenced Lisa’s tutorial from her post a few years ago, but when I checked with her she did let me know she’s had a few corners lift, so we added some reinforcement.

We started with ordering the Lego plates ahead of time!  Amazon limits you to 5 lego plates per order, so I had to place orders under two separate Amazon accounts to get all mine here.  We needed 8 plates.

The weekend we decided to do it we went ahead and sanded a few areas lightly and repainting the table the day before:

Then the next day (after letting it dry overnight good) we went ahead and laid all the lego plates out and measured the few that needed to be cut.  My husband, Scott, just used a large razor blade to cut the plates that needed to be cut.

Then after laying them all out to double check that we had the plates cut perfect to fit the table, we started glueing the plates down 1 by 1 using Liquid Nails.

Because Lisa had had a few corners lift over time on her table, we took tiny little nails and nailed down the corners of each plate.  What length of nail you use will depend on what table top you are using to create your lego table!

Because of the lego “bumps” we couldn’t get the nails immediately flat with a regular hammer, so we started by just getting them placed.

Then we used a Punch to hammer them flat!

And, that’s it!  We were done!

We took it back up to the boys room/playroom and they’ve been in heaven since!
