a mom's lego table. I made it.

I'm finally getting round to posting pics of this moms lego table that I made in March. I've been super busy lately, with the building stuff. I have a bunch of things to show you. I've just been lazy with getting photos uploaded.

I found this plan on anawhite.com and I needed to build it. It's a great design, a sophisticated coffee table with hidden storage for kids legos or other toys. I needed decent storage for blocks and legos, because I was constantly finding them strewn all over my house, upstairs and downstairs. They weren't able to play with them because they were never together in a set.  This project instantly moved up to top place on my todo list and I got it done.

I must admit, I'm quite pleased with it, and with myself. Here's the finished product.





This is how it began its life - as a pile of wood.




I drilled and glued and screwed.








And then I had myself a table.





March was an awkward month, on cold days I stained in the garage.



On warm ones I was able to do it out in the sunshine.



And then it was complete.





















The kids all love it. We take out blocks from time to time, then...put them all back when we're done. What a novel idea!

Thistle blocks! We're big fans, especially Eveline.
I was planning on doing some building this summer, but not sure how that will go now, with the baby coming and all.

This is such an amazing idea! And yet it looks like such a great coffee table at the same time. It's even work for little lego down the road...
