Fancy Lego Storage

Folks. Buckle up. Cause you are about to be shown how you can turn a sideboard into lego storage! No longer will you have a permanent imprint of a lego on the bottom of your foot.

What I used for this project:

  • Dresser
  • Sand paper
  • Paint
  • Paint brush
  • Paint roller
  • Wood for shelving
  • Saw
  • Wood glue
  • Measuring tape

To start off, took out the drawers, gave it a nice sanding and removed the old cardboard that was just kind of hanging there.

Once the sanding was completed, I wiped everything down so it was free of dust. I started to give it a nice coat of paint and since the paint was paint and primer in one, I was able to skip a step! Again, nice thin coats are key to a smooth finish.

While the paint dried, I worked on making shelves for where the drawers used to be. Measure twice and cut once! Note: I used a circular saw for this, but the wood is thin and you could do this with a hand saw, it will just take longer.

After I made my cuts, using sand paper I took care of the jagged edges. We don’t need those tiny kiddo fingers getting splinters! Then using wood glue, I went ahead and attached the wood inside the dresser and used some clamps to hold everything in place while it dried.

To finish it up, I added another coat of the paint to the entire piece as well as the new shelves.

Now it is living in its new space in all its lego glory!
