$2.99 Goodwill Make Over

Good Morning everyone.  Hope your Halloween was Spooktacular.

I want to show you what $2.99 and a man with tools can do for a sweet grandgirl!

Abby our 6 year old granddaughter wanted her grandpa to make her a special lego table.  She is so into being creative with legos.

Terry and I found this Lane piece solid oak at the Goodwill for $2.99


Terry said he could not buy good pieces of wood to make the table for $2.99 so we grab this chunk of wonderful wood and took it home to be re loved into a lego table for Abby.



Abby went with us to pick out the color of paint.  She loves purple so she picked out grape jelly for the legs and a lighter purple color for the main part of the table.  Looks pink with the way the light was hitting it but it is a light purple.

Dollar Store Bins with lids to store each of her lego kits.

Target sold the lego squares so it took 3 squares to make the base on the top of the table.

I could not resist these sweet fur stools I found at Hobby Lobby in the clearance.  So we painted the legs to match.


There is the "crew chief" sleeping on the job!!!!!
So here it is a lego table big enough for two to four kids to build for a $2.99 Goodwill find and a can of paint $20 and a sample $3 for the darker purple,  and twelve $1 bins. Terry said he probably could have gotten the lighter purple in a sample size too for $3 which would have been even more cost savings.  He said those sample Valspar paints go a long way.  So if you are thinking of doing a smaller paint project on furniture think about just having them mix up a sample for you.  Saves $$$$$.  Lego sq's for the top $15.  So for about $55 dollars you have a fabulous lego table.
I have seen these lego tables sell on Etsy for over $200.

Happy New Week.
Have a fabulous week.

  16. My girls would have loved this! The bins are smart to keep them organized. Nothing hurts more (at 2AM when you need to pee) than stepping on a lego! Well.....Barbie shoes are a close second! ;P

  18. Hi,
    LOVE it! Our son Sam made a Lego table too. My boys love to have a space to just set up a village or creation that they want on display. We also invested in bins. It helps the boys keep things organized.
    This is great!! Does your granddaughter like the Friends Lego Kits?

  24. That is so cute! I love how it's painted pink for a girl with the little organizers in it and the fur stools. So girly. Most lego tables are masculine. Can't beat that and it's made by her grandpa!

  26. Hi Kris, I bet Abby was over the moon when she saw that fantastic lego table. Terry did a great job again with his tools even though the crew chief was asleep, probably dreaming about Oreo cookies. ;) You found the perfect accessories for the table. The little girl is lucky to have such wonderful grandparents.
    Hugs,

  29. I've purchased a lot of those little Valspar samples. That husband of yours is nothing short of a genius. And it is absolutely undeniably beautiful! I would sure hate to see you have to move away from those grandkids. This is one of the most creative things I've seen in a long time!
