Malm Lego Table

Materials: Malm 2 drawer chest, large dowel, spray paint, Lego base plate, glue

Description: I was looking to make my grand-daughter a Lego table. The ones I saw were either too large or I didn’t like the storage. The Malm 2 draw chest was the perfect size. I spray painted it Lego colors, cut the large dowel into approx 2 inch “slices” and glued them on the front to make “giant Legos”, and glued the base plate onto the top.
