10 LEGO Storage Ideas You Wish You’d Thought Of

By  | 

You never think you need LEGO storage until you step on one of those little bricks when you’re barefoot. It seems like the boys never have this problem but I know I’m not just talking about myself here.

I’ve found some amazing DIY LEGO storage ideas you’ll wish you had thought of (sooner!) that are sure to keep the LEGOs organized by color and shape.

I love the LEGO wall but there are some great ideas for creating your own LEGO table too. The 1980s parquet table transformed into a rockin’ lego table is fantastic and I love how a train table has been converted into a LEGO table.  Even the LEGO table made from plastic drawer units gives plenty of inspiration for keeping LEGOs off the floor!

P.S. Don’t forget to check idea the great idea for cleaning LEGOs. It’s pretty genius.

Create a great building center using plastic bins and a piece of wood from the hardwood store. This building center is completely versitile and has many functions. The plastic bins hold LEGOs by color, size, and shapes and has a place for everything. The center bin can be removed to wheel to another area or even create a space underneath for stools. The top is made from a piece of wood with base plates that is completely removeable. That way you can build on the floor or even flip it over for a great blank slate.

Use liquid nails or E6000 to last a lifetime or maybe some hot glue to last until the next phase.
