If your kids are LEGO fans, you likely know how difficult it can be to keep track of them all and how building things on the floor can get dangerous for your poor feet. Thanks to a TikTok hack, there’s a solution.
Content creator @XOMyHome used a $29 IKEA table, some LEGO mats, and plastic bins to create the perfect LEGO table on a budget.
In her video, the creator uses the LACK coffee table from IKEA as her base. Then, using Gorilla Glue, she adds LEGO mats over the top to create a base for building. While you could stop here, she doesn’t.

There are several color options you can choose from.
Next, she uses wooden slats and attaches them to the bottom of the table. Then, she slips in plastic bins that hold all of her child’s LEGOs so that they’re easily accessible when it comes time to build. If, however, you don’t want to do any of the extra work, the LACK coffee table comes with a bottom level that you can easily add bins to without needing to attach drawer slats.
If your child is a LEGO lover, but your organization skills are making it difficult to keep up with all of the tiny pieces, this clever DIY just might be the trick. For those who always find themselves dipping into their kids’ collections, you can always check out the adult LEGO site.
