Legos are among many kids’ favorite toys, but gosh they are messy.

If Legos are a hit in your house, but you don’t enjoy stepping on them, you may consider building a Lego table. I found this idea over at Fussy Monkey Business and it’s a brilliant idea!

Using an old table and basket (materials that can be found at any second-hand store or yard sale), you too can create this awesome Lego table for hours and hours of enjoyment.

Basic Instructions

  • Cut a hole in the top of the table that matches the dimensions of your basket
  • Spray paint desired color
  • Cut and affix a Lego plate to the table

You can get the full instructions on the Fussy Monkey Business website.

There are some other great tutorials, like this one that uses a coffee table from Domestic Imperfection and this one from Through The Eyes Of The Mrs. that uses an old end table.
