What a clever Lego table!

Crystal at Fussy Monkey Business transformed this uber dated end table:

into this swank Lego holder:

using a jigsaw to cut out the top and spray paint to...paint. Full details here:

Apparently Target sells the lego bases for $14.99.

My husband owned an end table just like this when we met. It was uber laminate and ugly but it had belonged to a relative so he loved it. He would have probably loved it more if it held Legos instead of imaginary corded phones.

Also - what's up with bloggers spray painting everything these days? I predict in a year all these "spray all things" posts will be replaced by "strip and refinish all peeling things."

That is really cool! What are the odds you'd find a basket to fit perfectly in that space? I remember when stripping and refinishing furniture was all the rage. It might happen again, but I doubt it. Too much work involved. Messy stripping chemicals and all that too. It's easier to paint stuff.

You'd have to visit a "real" store but shops like Burlington, Marshalls and TJ Maxx have entire aisles dedicated to baskets for cheap. This looks like a dvd sized box to me.
