If you are a parent, you have stepped on a Lego or cursed the piles of random pieces throughout your home at some point. Well, I decided I couldn’t live one more minute with Legos all over my house!
After my husband and I discussed a very vague plan, we packed the kids in the car and we were off to Ikea! We were the last ones to drop off our three kids to the lovely staff at the ever so popular Kiddieland before the wait time began. Phew, that was a close one. Knowing we had limited kid-free time, we high tailed it to the office section where we found everything we needed:
- Small file cabinet drawers
- Super cheap desk tops
- Floating shelves
- Desk Chairs
We came up with a simple design that required very little work to be done! The table tops simply rest on top of the file cabinet drawers making three designated work areas, one for each kid. We then added floating shelves that span the width of the desk areas to display all their “creations”. Lastly, we picked out the cheapest yet comfortable desk chairs.
After a nice dinner all together, we sent the boys to bed and we got started on the new lego station center. In addition to the desk and display area construction, I created nameplates for each of our lego builders that showed their name, age and master builder status. (Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for a blank nameplate document for your own master builder!)
In just 3 hours — we were finished!
