We have had a train table in our front room for around 5 years now and it has been well loved and used.
Sebastian is starting to outgrow his wooden train sets now and prefers building LEGO creations at the table.
The table itself was in good condition, but the hard board base was looking tired and worn and we were keen to update it into something more useful and the idea of a dedicated LEGO table was born.
We were offered some Strictly Briks Base Plates to review and this was the ideal opportunity to start the transformation.
Strictly briks® items are compatible with all major brands of bricks, including LEGO® and DUPLO® brand sets and come in a range of colours and sizes. We were sent the 6″ x 6″ base plates but found them too small to cover the table, so bought some 10″ x 10″ size plates to complete the job.
As the hard board table top wasn’t nailed down, we flipped it over so Sebby can still use the table for his trains, and stuck the Strictly Brik Plates down with No More Nails.
As you can see from the picture, some of the plates had to be cut to size, which Hubby did with a penknife.
We laid it all out first and checked the kids were happy with the colours we had used before finally sticking it down as they can be quite fussy!
All the kids love the newly transformed table and have been busy working on their creations, or building scenes with their LEGO minifigures. I can see it being used for many more years to come.
