Large Lego workspace from Ikea parts

Materials: Expedit Bookshelves, Desk. Trofast bins

Description: This is a large Lego table/workspace I made for my kids from Expedit parts mostly.

Full details are here.

First I made legs for the “table” from 2×4′s. They are glued and screwed to the underside of the Expedit desk.

Then I painted the legs black

I cut the moulding to size and painted it black

Cut, glued and nailed the moulding to the top of the table and Expedit bookshelves.

Installed Lego base plates and glued them (lightly).

Installed the storage bins and that’s about it.
