Lego tables are wonderful things. They create a solid space for little ones to play and get the creative juices flowing, but more often than not, they aren't really something you want in your living room. It's not that you're exactly opposed to the Legos being there, but the tables themselves aren't exactly stylish. That's why you should build your own! Check out what this table hides inside…
Ana White has been busy once again and this time she's taken to the living room (which she's determined to build entirely from the ground up... windows and all!). She's been faced with the same problem many of us as parents are...Do you make kids stuff look good and keep it available in grown up spaces or keep dragging toys that migrate from other areas of the home back to their respecitve spaces at the end of the day?
Ana's hide away coffee table is the best of both worlds and not only looks great, but has large toy storage bins within it. They're perfect for holding anything from Lincoln Logs to Legos, and even has recessed panels so Lego bases will fit right in. This makes it easy for small hands to stay busy while parents take a few moments to snuggle on the sofa and catch up on a little HGTV or Mad Men.
Head over and check out the full tutorial for this table, it would make a great holiday gift for parents and kids alike — and don't fret if you've never attempted wood working, Ana makes things simple with easy step by step photos and a cut list to take to your hardware store. They do the hard part for you!
