Lego table from IKEA kitchen cabinet door

Materials: Ikea kitchen cabinet door, VIKA legs, Trofast bin, LEGO base boards


Last month IKEA in Florida were discontinuing a lot of kitchen cabinet doors for $3 a piece. I bought a bunch of them to my Playstation 3 Racing cockpits (for this see p.83 post #1650). Some where left over and since I needed a Lego table I made this one in less than 90 minutes.

With a jigsaw I simply made a hole in the middle.
I glued the Lego base boards for durability.
I attached 4x VIKA legs ($3.50 each)
I attached a Trofast bin by screwing it on the underside.
Thats it!

P.S. You can also easily modify this. If you dont want to make a hole you can instead use a Trofast bin as a drawer. You will need the rails from the WHITE Trofast cabinet (the pine colored does not come with
rails). If in stock IKEA customer counter or AS-IS will usually give them for free.

    thanks for this one. i am going to do this in the next month or so. my daughter is now standing and this is perfect. one question: was your cabinet hollow inside (like a lack shelf) or solid? don’t want to make a mistake.

  2. Beautiful! I would love to do the same thing when I have a child.

    And your daughter is lovely. :)

    Did you have to trim the Vika legs? Because I thought they came in 27″ heights, but they look a lot shorter in your picture.
