Reversible LEGO Playtable



I'm so happy to be a part of Celebrate the Boy this year. In terms of Blogland it is my favorite time of year. This project is actually something that the entire family will enjoy. I've had this idea in my mind for quite a while and since we are going to Legoland for Spring Break next month, this is the perfect project for the Romeo kids. I decided since this is a Celebrate the Boy project that I needed to get some of the big boys around here involved, so Opa (my dad) came over one afternoon to work on this project with me.


My kids love to play low to the ground so I created a table that could be used with floor pillows or just hanging out on their knees. You can make a table with longer legs if you want to use chairs.

I made the Lego bag using this tutorial that was featured earlier in celebrate the Boy.

What a great project! I love this, if I had little brothers or something this is definately something really cool to make for them. I also really like the lego bag you made to go with it, great idea!

if you put a bottom on it, you can use it as storage, as well.

Okay, it's official - you're a genius! What an amazing project!

Great idea!

This totally rocks, especially because it helps you cope when things don't work out perfectly! This is on my to-do list for sure, thanks!

This is awesome! My son is still too little for Legos, but I'm filing this one away for a future holiday gift for him (or perhaps I should get started now so I can finish before he grows out of Legos :)).

Where did you get that awesome Lego fabric? My little man (due in June) won't be ready for Legos for awhile, but my BIG man (25-year-old husband) is obsessed with them!

Here's the place I bought the fabric. It looks like the exact fabric I got is out of stock, but there are some other cute Lego fabrics. Also, try Etsy. Pretty sure you can find some there.

Cool tutorial. One thing I think I would ad would be a bottom, so the bag of legos have a storage spot too :)

Yes for a bottom! I'd love to see some of your play tables out there that include a bottom!

moomi said...

this is fantastic, well done sascha! now can you please make one for me and send it to australia? ;)
you could also add castor wheels on the bottom too (but knowing my two boys this would encourage one to sit on top of the table while the other pushes him around, so maybe forget about that idea...)
love your blog sascha, keep up the good work!

AWESOME!!! A new item for hubby's 'honey-do' list for our princesses...who also LOVE legos. Really, who doesn't love legos?! Fun stuff! Thanks for posting such a comprehensive tutorial- you ROCK!!!

KID, MD said...

I showed this to the hubby and he immediately bought the necessary base plates. He assures me that we already have the lumber and he is super excited to build this. I'll send pictures if it gets off the ground.

Sascha said...

Katie, I cannot wait to see the table. How cool!

RubysNPurls said...

Thank you so much for this great tutorial!! I know tutorials take a lot of time and energy, so thanks a lot!! I'm going to get my dad to make one or two for my little guy! ;)

Becky said...

What an awesome idea and tutorial! Already had the hubby pick up the lumber and plates, and we are both super excited to start. I think he might get more use out of it than my son for now though, mostly because of his huge Lego love :)

Kimberly said...

Love, love, love LOVE!

Thanks so much for this article. I was browsing the internet for Lego tables and came across your site. It inspired me to build my own based on your design. I used the Lego street plates and the kids love it. Thanks again.
