A couple of weeks ago when I took JD to his first dentist appointment we ran into a small little problem, JD didn't want to leave the office waiting room! He was absolutely enthralled with their LEGO table and threw a fit when it was time to go home. Well that afternoon I decided to Google LEGO tables and was so disappointed to see they were any where from $80-$300! A few days later (after JD kept mentioning "LEGO, Dentista") I Googgled how to make a LEGO table and you'll never guess what popped up, IKEA Hackers LACK LEGO Table and I was immediately inspired to make JD his very own LEGO table. Here is how I did it.
- IKEA LACK Side Table $9.99 (my mom actually had one laying around the house)
- LEGO Duplo Green Building Plate (15" X 15") $16.99
Things we had around the house:
- Earthquake Putty
- Two Wall Hooks
- Liquid Nails Adhesive
- Two Tin Buckets
I attached the LEGO base plate to the table with Earthquake Putty
then attached 2 hooks to the bottom of the table with liquid nails adhesive
and once the liquid nails adhesive dried (1 hour to dry, 8 hours to cure) I placed one bucket on each hook and filled them with Duplo LEGOS
He loves it!
