This week I made my oldest son a Lego table in anticipation of his upcoming birthday gifts being mostly Lego related.
I started out by thrifting this old TV stand. I went to several thrift stores before I settled on one. I knew I wanted solid wood so it would take spray paint well and hold up for years to come, but I just kept finding crappy particle board ones. I also wanted it to have doors or a space for storage.
Finally found a solid wood stand at Second Chance (SPCA) Thrift
Then I bought some bright orange spray paint. I picked the paint that will "stick to plastic" my thought process here was, if it sticks to plastic it will stick to wood without sanding...
It took four cans for a total of $20ish dollars.
Then I contact cemented the two baseplates on top. That stuff is strong and they aren't going anywhere! I ordered the baseplates online for about $6 each.
Corralled the Lego from around the house...
Total cost $55ish
I am very pleased with the outcome!
If you've made something similar I'd love to hear about it, link to pics if possible:)
