What You Need

Materials

  • IKEA Trofast structure
  • 3 IKEA trofast storage boxes
  • Masking tape
  • Piece of wood
  • 2 LEGO plates
  • Glue
  • 4 wheels

Instructions

  1. Cut the Trofast frame at the 4th shelve (or at the desired height)
  2. Assemble bottom of the storage, glue and screw top of the storage in the frame
  3. Hide screw heads by putting masking tape around top and bottom of the frame
  4. Glue 2 LEGO plates on top of the structure. To cut the LEGO plates, simply use scissors
  5. Add wheels underneath
  6. Cut 3 pieces of wood the same length as the side of the structure and screw on the side. Glue rest of LEGO plates on top of the wood pieces. Add masking tape to hide the screws.

And voilà, a very happy kid that can store all their LEGO pieces without having their parents breaking their feet. For more photos and instructions (in French) check out Stéphanie's blog.
