Thanks to pinterest, I found a new use for my ugly old Ikea coffee table. Pinterest is littered with Ikea Lack end tables turned lego tables, but I had a Lack coffee table, which is bigger, and frankly better, since I have three preschoolers who will need to play here happily (ha!) together. My favorite of the DIY lego tables that I browsed was Jill's from Meet the Dubiens. I pretty much knocked it off. And I love it!
Before, uninspiring $20 coffee table, well used.
Since I was using 2 plates, I attached them together with a big block, to make sure they were aligned correctly. I centered them on my table, and put some tape around the edge so I'd know where to put it back down after I applied glue. Not a very scientific process, but it seemed to work pretty well. I gorilla glued those puppies down, and removed the blue tape. I left it overnight, weighted down with some books.
