"I have a 3-year-old niece who is the inspiration behind most of my projects for kids. This table was made to try and keep all her lego blocks in one place. The drawers can be used to store the blocks. The table can also be used as an activity table. The lego plates can be removed from the tabletop, which can then be used as an activity table. I gave the table a lego appearance to make it more appealing. And to finish it off I added some nice bright colours. "

Instructions

  1. I used an old study desk which I repurposed for this project.

  2. The table was a bit high for a toddler, so I marked out the size that I wanted which was 50 cm and cut away the excess with a circular saw. This also removed the broken drawer which worked out well.

  3. Next, I sanded down all the wood. Even though I was going to be painting the wood I know from past projects all the defects show through even using chalk paint.

  4. I painted the table using chalk paint because that was what I had at home and gave it 4 coats of water-based polyurethane to make it more toddler-proof.

  5. Because I was calling it a building block table, I wanted the drawers to look like a building block. To do this I used a hole saw attached to my drill and cut out 8 circles for each drawer. I sanded off all the rough edges and filled in the centre hole with wood filler. I rubbed the surface with some sandpaper to smooth out the filler.

  6. I painted the drawer fronts and the circles using Unicorn Spit Stain and glaze and added 4 coats of polyurethane. I used epoxy resin glue to attach the circles to the front of the drawers.

  7. I bought 4 building block base plates for the top. I was going to glue them to the top, but had second thoughts and thought it would be easier to sell if the table could be used for other activities.
