My kids love playing with Legos and building all kinds of things. They can play together for hours and it really forces them to use their imagination, problem solving skills and not to mention they practice sharing and taking turns. We had a bin full of hundreds of Lego pieces but they never really had a space to play with them comfortably.
My husband and I tossed around the idea of making them a table but we already had a big train table in their room that took up too much space. Then, it came to us. We’d turn the other side of the train table into a Lego table!

My parents gifted the boys a train table 2 Christmases ago and we knew it was perfect for this DIY project. The one we have is no longer available anywhere but you can find a similar one here.
After clearing off the train pieces, making the Lego table was as easy as..
- Flipping over the boards.
- Setting up the Peel and Stick Baseplates where we want them.
- Peel off the back and stick them on!

My boys love their new Lego table and being able to switch back to the train side when they want makes this so worth it. We didn’t have to get rid of something they truly enjoy and they feel like they got something brand new. It’s a win-win!
The Baseplates are 10″ x 10″ and come in a 4-pack. We used two packs for our DIY and it worked perfectly.
They’re compatible with all major building brick brands, which of course includes Lego. You can also cut them as needed to make different shapes or fit any area. We didn’t feel the need to cut them because they fit perfectly on our table.
Keep in mind, the adhesive they come with is very strong and cannot be re-positioned. Once it’s stuck, it’s on forever. I suggest really measuring before removing that backing and making sure you plan exactly where you want it to avoid mistakes.
