LEGO DIY table

Tables are must-have furniture in a home, and they contribute to the overall appeal of your interior decor. But like everything else, tables are vulnerable to time and age. Regardless of how beautiful your table is, it will get old someday. When that happens, you'll have to decide on what to do with it. Typically, you'll have two options; you can discard it and lose hard-earned money, or give it a complete revamp and make it new again. 

If you are going with the second option, you should consider revamping your table to resonate with the magic of your favorite toy company, LEGO. While this may seem like a farfetched idea, it is simpler than it looks. Believe it or not, the biggest part of the project is getting the table. But, If you don't have a perfect table for the project, you can visit any second-hand store in your area to make a purchase. There are no fixed guidelines for the type of table you are permitted to use for this project, so feel free to explore. When you find the perfect table for the job, get to work. 

To achieve the LEGO DIY table, you'll need spray paint, LEGO plate, LEGO pieces, glue, and woodcutter (optional).

The first thing to do is to mark the portions of the table where you want your LEGO designs to appear. While we recommend that you choose the topmost part of the table for this task, the decision is up to you. 

Once you have mapped out the space for your LEGO design, cut a hole in that area. Before spraying, make sure the hole is big enough to accommodate your LEGO plate. Then, with your spray paint, cover every inch of the table with your favorite LEGO color. Then, leave the table outside to dry.

Next, glue the LEGO plate to the designated area on the table and leave it out to dry. Your table should be popping by now, so take some time to enjoy the fruits of your labor. 

The last step of this DIY project is to arrange the LEGO pieces on the plate to recreate your favorite LEGO set. So in the end, you'll have a centerpiece integrated with your table. While this concludes the project, you can go a step further to install specially designed LEGO lights on the integrated set. 

Now that you are done recreating the brilliant LEGO table, you may fancy other genius LEGO additions for your interior decor. If you are, here are some genius ideas to consider.

Make your kitchen pop with LEGO colors. If you are looking for a great addition to your kitchen decor, a LEGO kitchen utensil holder is the ideal addition.

Therefore, the chances of your LEGO kitchen utensil holder rusting in your space is almost non-existent. 

The project is simple; all you need is a few LEGO pieces and some free time on your hands. In general, kitchen utensils holders are rectangular or square-like containers with a hollow interior. Thus, you can achieve the project without breaking a sweat.

You'll need glue for this project and glass (if you want to get sassy with your design). The glue will bind the LEGO bricks together so they don't fall apart during the building process, and the glass will bring the design together.

When building the desk, we recommend that you stack more LEGO pieces at the weight-bearing ends. This will keep the desk from falling apart when weight is introduced to it.

All that is left to do, is to enjoy the fruits of your labor and marvel at the sight of your creation.
