A great way to display and play with Lego, this chalkboard Lego table also helps to keep all those little bits in one place. Add some more fun by painting part of the table with chalkboard paint!



Finished table

Materials:
Small side or end table
Lego base (I used 3)
Primer
Sandpaper
Sander (if desired)
Chalkboard paint
Painting tools (brush or small roller)
Construction adhesive or strong bonding glue
Painters tape
Yellow craft paint

Method:
Start by sanding your table lightly so the primer and the adhesive will stick well.



Finished table
I already had sandpaper ready to go on my sander but a hand sanding will be fine.

Prime the area you want to paint with the chalkboard paint. Allow to dry.



Finished table

Paint at least two coats of chalkboard paint. My table needed three.
Cover the chalkboard paint in a layer of chalk. I have heard that you should do this to avoid setting in lines when drawing with the chalk.



Finished table

Apply adhesive to the table and the Lego base plates and adhere to the table. Wiggle slightly to adhere the glue and press down for a few seconds to secure.

I painted lines on the road by measuring out 1 cm segments on painter's tape, applying the tape to the chalkboard and using a small craft brush painted on strips ever one centimeter.
Let completely dry and start using!

My son loved the chalkboard part of the table. He made his own design in the open section and put crosswalks on the road for his Lego guys to cross!


It would be easy to screw some baskets on the side for storage of small pieces and characters that were not in use. You could also store chalk and wipes in the baskets to use on the chalkboard.

If you can buy a small firmly constructed suitcase I was thinking of gluing Lego baseboards on the bottom of the base of the case and storage all in one Especially handy when travelling by car or plane occupying kids on journeys instead of using hand held/ Computer games etc .Lee /CreativeLee
