Our boys were HUGE lego fans when they were younger, and even now at 28 & 31, they still enjoy it!
When they got their first sets our large coffee table in the livingroom was enough space to work. The challenge in those days was to keep their baby sister away.
As their collection grew, they graduated up to an old melamine dinette table that we found at the Thrift Store. Papa Bear attached wood quarter round on the edges to keep pieces from falling on the floor.
The collection grew and grew and before long this set-up was too small. Papa Bear then added a 4 x 8′ sheet of heavy pine panelling on the top to allow room for greater creativity.
This week we are doing a round-up of some great Lego storage and organizing ideas that are not just functional, but fun too!!
This DIY table and wall mounted bins give lots of storage and includes a play surface as well.

There is a challenge though for this idea as it uses IKEA Trofast rails. Based on my research you don’t seem to be able to buy them separate from the units that they are part of. Might be worth buying the unit though and removing the rails for this purpose and then doing something creative with what remains. OR take the idea above and run with it, and think of a way to substitute some other hardware for the Trofast Rails.
This storage tower is a basic idea, but very workable and quick and easy to implement.

When my daughter was young there wasn’t the great selection of Lego Friends sets that there is now.
