The Most Beautiful Lego Table Ever…

Hey guys!  I made it back from out of town safe and had a little something to show you before I start my own projects.  I spent the last few days with the two most talented people I know… Literally.  They ooze creativity and everything they make looks like it cost a million bucks even though it is usually made with pennies.  It’s my husband’s mom and step-dad.  She is the one who taught me to sew along with MANY other things.  He is an amazing artist and woodworker…. Lucky me, right???   Well, we had discussed that my younger daughter was loving Legos right now and they suggested a Lego table.  I jumped on that and they got to work.  My jaw dropped when she opened it this last weekend…
Yes… That is a Lego table!  I told them that I was going to steal it from my daughter because I loved it soooo much!
He used 2×4’s cut in half for the legs, some scrap fiberboard for everything else and then used a medallion they found at Hobby Lobby for the center detail…. Oh… I love it….
He spray painted the entire thing with Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch in Black… Man of good taste:)  He then glued the two Lego boards to the top using a bit of Gorilla Glue.  I have it next to her bed for the moment but I think it will move to another part of the room soon.  Now it just needs a cute stool… I have added that to my project list:)  What do you think??  Did your jaw drop like mine?? 
Thank you Gigi and Chemmy for this AMAZING gift.  My kids are so blessed to have both of you in their lives.
Get those posts ready for January 7th!  These don’t have to be big projects… Just ANYTHING your two hands have made without the help of your hubby’s!  Have a great Wednesday!!

    Wow! Maybe your daughter will forget it's hers after a few years and you'll inherit it.

    Whitney,

    I have the same pottery barn bedding in my master bedroom! I laughed and was so jealous when I saw yours because you have the shams!! My husband didn't buy the shams when we bought me the quilt, so ever since I've looked for those everywhere! Lol, Just thought it was a funny coincidence!

    PS- Love the table!

    So I am totally addicted to your site. I so love to craft and make things old come back to life. I have a old night stand that almost went to the wast, but you just gave me the best idea. So my Grandma's old night stand will soon be painted and sit by my front door. Thank you
    Traci.
