DIY Lego Creation Station
Lach has really moved into Lego making over the past 6 months and I feel like it’s going to be a hobby for many years to come.
In my search for the right Lego storage/play space solution, I wanted:
✔️ To create a space for him to both create and store his growing collection.
✔️ Portability so we could move it between the playroom, his room and our living room.
✔️ Multiple configurations for set up, allowing a large creation space or smaller separate spaces to work separately from Ted The Destroyer
✔️ The ability to change the base plates when he wanted so he could build on different “surfaces”.
✔️And finally - because I’m neurotic - I also wanted to implement a bit of a storage system so that he could find certain pieces more easily.
I wasn’t asking for much.
As I sat on the floor sorting through approximately 14,226 pieces of Lego late on Saturday night, I wondered “Am I delirious or just stupid?”
But it’s done! I can say this has genuinely been one of the most useful things I've made 🙌🏻
- TROFAST Storage Combination (light white stained pine) with 3 small and 3 large white boxes, $126 x 1
- TROFAST Storage Combination (light white stained pine) with 9 small white boxes, $135 x 1 (you can just buy the frames and the boxes separately, but these combos worked for me).
- The nestï Lego Creation Station Project Kit Decals $48, including 28 customised decals
From Bunnings Warehouse or a similar hardware store:
- Move It 50mm 40kg Grey Swivel Right Bracket Castor - 2 Pack $10 x 4 packs. See my comments in the Steps images below about these castors and why you may prefer to use regular castors without angle brackets.
- 12mm screw 35pk x 2 $3.98 each
- OPTIONAL Pinnacle 65mm Matte Black Cabin Hook x 4, $8.10 each (see Steps images below)
- Carpet Gripper Tape to hold the base plates in place. I used AKO brand as I already had an unused roll at home. I can’t see this online anymore, but the closest option is Roberts 63mm x 7.62m Rug Gripper Roll $17.50
- 14 Construction base plates. I prefer the Lego ones, which are more expensive at $10 each. You can also buy other non-Lego brand plates here ($12 for 5 pk).
