We adore LEGOs at our house which is why we have spent so much time trying to figure out how to wrangle them. Millions and millions of little pieces can wreck havoc on a normally tidy house.
I recently collected a bunch of LEGO organization ideas and today am following up with that thought with 12 homemade LEGO tables!
12 Genius LEGO Tables
The first LEGO table hack on this list is mine. After much research, this is what I came up with. The supplies included a table from IKEA which was pretty inexpensive. The expensive part was the LEGO base plates – those can really add up.
The good news is that years later, the LEGO table is still active and looks brand new. It is something that my boys use daily which makes the investment totally worth it.

More LEGO Hacks
I have found that the most important thing in keeping LEGO bricks under control is a place to store them and a place to play with them. It is hard for my boys to “put away” all their LEGO creations which is why a table where they can leave them out and play has worked so well for us.
