Building with Legos is a favorite activity for all three of my kids. My oldest has accumulated thousands of Lego pieces in his 17 years, and he still builds the most fabulous creations from time to time. I’ve always admired the Lego tables I see on Pinterest and around the web, and have wanted to make something similar for my kids.

So I finally picked up two Lego mats at Target for around $15 each,
and then kept my eyes open for a good “furniture” piece to attach them too.

My husband spotted this rolling cart kit at our local Marc’s store for around $20,
and I loved the fact that it had wheels so we could move it from room to room.
Plus the measurement was the perfect fit for the Lego mats.

It only took a few minutes to assemble.

and also fit neatly under the table top.

you attach them with Legos so you get the spacing right BEFORE you
glue the mats down!

DIY Lego Cart, Lego Table, Joyful HomemakingI used my glue gun to attach the mats to the top,
but it WAS a bit tricky because the glue dries
so fast, so there may be a better alternative out there as far as adhesives go.
If you do use your glue gun though, I suggest putting some glue on the middle first,
and then centering the plates on the table top, and then you can go around and glue
the edges a little at a time by gently lifting them up, then pressing down to get a good seal.

Now it’s ready for lots of fun Lego creations!

The kids dove right into building and playing with their Legos,
after they heard me mixing them up!

For around $50 we have a great little Lego cart, and if you already have a furniture piece
that would work, or some Lego mats, it would be even less expensive!

  1. That’s awesome how it worked out! I definitely need to keep a project like that in mind for the grandkids. Thanks for sharing it.

  2. I love this!! Do you have any ideas for keeping them interested in making the sets over and over?? My boys love putting together a new set and they play with it, but they think that if all the pieces to that set aren’t easy to find, they don’t want to do it again. I try and keep all the pieces together, however, we have tons all mixed together. They just want the sets. Any ideas?

  3. This is such a genius idea. I have been wondering what to do with our Lego storage as right now it is in little plastic drawer bins sitting on the floor. This would work perfectly. Now to find a similar type of rolling storage. We don’t have a Marc’s where I live.

  4. What a great idea! I would love it if you joined and contribute your awesome posts at my link party at City of Creative Dreams on Fridays 😀 Hope to see you there at City of Creative Dreams Link Party

    1. I can’t seem to find them any longer either. I know closetmaid still makes the cubes and maybe wheels could be added. I also wonder if something like this might work? (3 drawer chest)
