How To Build A Lego Table To Store Lego And Duplo

Are You Drowning In Lego And Duplo? Here’s How We Built A Portable Lego Table

Here’s how we build a Lego table…If your house is anything like our house – which I imagine, if you have small children, it probably is – then there will be a lot of Lego around.

Mainly on the floor, waiting for a parent’s foot to tread on it.

To try and avoid this potential underfoot catastrophe, we’ve recently made a portable Duplo and Lego table. Here’s how…

The Lego Storage Problem

Lego and Duplo are brilliant, arent they? The endless possibilities of hours of play, how bright, unisex and colourful it is, I could go on, as our supplies do.

Which means we’re always in need of new ways to store Lego and Duplo.

After being inspired by something similar on Pinterest I thought a Lego table would be a good solution; something that offered storage and a flat Lego building space.

When we were sent the Great Little Trading Company Potter Storage Stool, it seemed like a perfect opportunity.

It also has the added bonus that you can move it around the house easily (oh, did I mention it’s also a seat?).

The Potter Storage Stool is part of the white and wood Scandi-inspired Potter furniture range from GLTC (which means, like all things GLTC, it will look great around the house).

It’s such a clever product; the stool has a hidden storage compartment, accessed via the lid.

I love that it looks simple and neutral but is also really practical, with the added bonus that you can hide secrets inside.

Which, let’s face it, is a big thing when you’re little.

How We Made Our Lego Storage Table

We turned our Potter storage stool into a Lego table using:

Storage chair which is at playing height.

A Lego baseplate from Amazon (which cost around £5)

Glue dots or blue tack to stick it to the table to turn it into a flat Lego playing area.

And when it’s not in use, we can take it off the lid and store it inside the stool with the rest of the Lego. Which is useful as the stool is useful for lots of other things around the house too, from an actual seat to a side table.

Our stool / Lego table is just at the right height for them to sit at. Happily, for hours.

We were sent the stool from GLTC as part of our role on the testing team (it costs around £68 but is currently reduced in the sale).

All Lego, model’s own.

    Ah I love this Gill it looks great. And so stylish too. We bought a cheap IKEA table and stuck lego boards to it in our old house and the girls absolutely loved it. We don’t really have anywhere for it to go in this one otherwise I would definitely be using it again. I bet your girls think it is fab. x
