Remember the awesome road tabletop that I made for our light table?  Well, if you flip it over, then you will find our homemade Lego table!  Yes, that means that just like the road tabletop, it fits on top of our light table or it can be played with on the floor.  Homemade, portable, and fun!  It's also compatible with Lego Duplo and regular Lego so that means that this homemade Lego table will grow with the boys.

Here's what I used to make the Lego table:
I arranged the Lego baseplates until I found the layout that worked best for the size of my table.  Then I marked the edges with a pencil.  I removed the Lego baseplates so that I could paint the edges of the table first.  I gave the table two generous coats of acrylic paint.  Once dry, I glued the Lego baseplates down with the Gorilla Glue.

Here's an important tip about gluing Lego baseplates.  You have to leave a small gap between baseplates in order for Duplo or regular Lego to fit on more than one baseplate at a time.  What I did was attach two baseplates together with some Duplo while I glued the baseplates down.  Doing so ensured that I had the correct spacing.

After the baseplates were all glued down, I was unhappy with the amount of white space there was. I decided to pretty it up with some inspirational quotes cut from vinyl.  I used the quotes, "Imagination will take you everywhere," by Albert Einstein and "You can't use up creativity.  The more you use, the more you have," by Maya Angelou.  I made the key words (imagination, everywhere, and creativity) in bold, bright vinyl colors.

To protect the painted surface, I applied a couple coats of Mod Podge.

Then it was ready for play time!  Since this Lego table is an interchangeable tabletop for our light table, it is also portable.  So sometimes we play with it on the floor.
