Lack LEGO Table

Materials: LACK Side Table

Description: My son has been asking for a LEGO table ever since he saw one at his dentist’s office. After searching for a reasonably priced LEGO table and not finding one, I decided to make him one myself using an IKEA LACK side table. This hack was very inexpensive, very easy to do and my son loves his new LEGO table!

- IKEA LACK Side Table (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

1. Attach the LEGO base plate to the table with Earthquake Putty.

2. Attach 2 hooks to the bottom of the table with liquid nails adhesive.

3. Once the liquid nails adhesive dries (1 hour to dry, 8 hours to cure). Place one bucket on each hook and fill them with LEGOS.

    Hows does the earthquake putty work? Is it permanent, and how did you use it under the base plate?
    Thanks! Love this idea!

    The table is actually hollow and screws would not support the buckets!

    The storage is a useful idea. This helps organize the lego and other stuff.

  4. It is nice to create such interesting stuff for children so that they have fun growing up.I thought you could also ad a cabinet underneath for the storage of the Lego parts.

    Why don’t you just screw the hooks on??
    BTW, “hack” does NOT = Simplistic sticking of items to other item!

  6. I wish had one of these when I was a kid. Good job!

    I like the idea of the Lego table but they’re all too big. This one will fit in a bedroom share by three boys PERFECTLY! Thanks for sharing!

    Oooh, I love the simplicity of this, and it looks great. It also seems like it might do the impossible: help keep some of the Lego pieces contained and out from underfoot. Nice!
