Never too many colors! (AKA Another Lego table)

Lego Table Aurelien Metral 1

When like me your home is equipped with white walls, any opportunity brighten up this one with colors is up for grabs! And what’s more colorful than Lego? :)

The idea stayed in my mind for a long time until a visit at Ikea a few years ago, and saw this coffee table with a modern and simple design, I knew immediately it would be the perfect base for my hack.

The table consists of a chrome hardware and a tempered glass, it simply took me a good amount of bricks (around 5000 if I remember correctly) and a MFD board painted black (to support the Lego which are not glued) and interpose them between the base and the glass, layered as a good cake! Et voilà!

You probably have already seen a Lego table, it’s not the first and certainly not the last.. but this is mine!

    i saw it, thank you @Ruth! :)

    @M I just put up the glass on the lego, as it is quite heavy it does not move at all.

    Hey, I admired your post the other day and I have just noticed it has been featured on Apartment Therapy. Congratulations that’s awesome (as is the table!)

    how do you make the glass top on hold on top of the lego bricks?

  7. Aurelien M. says:

    Not the same, the Torsby is bigger, plus the glass is tinted and not see-through.. not the best to highlight the Legos. :)

    Unfortunately I have no idea what the name of the table is. Bought it maybe 3 years ago and was about to be discontinued, so from an even older Ikea collection.
