Looking for a great way to store larger building bricks such as DUPLOs, but also want some functional play space? This DIY IKEA FLISAT Table Hack is just what you need!
- Creative QT Peel 'n Stick Baseplates compatible with DUPLO, green, 2-pack 10" x 20" ($29.99)
- IKEA FLISAT Children's Table ($49.99)
- TROFAST Storage box, 2 x small white ($3 each)
- Larger building bricks such as DUPLOs or Mega Bloks
- Sharp craft or utility knife (we used this one)
- Craft mat or chopping board
Want to make one for your kids? We love the fact that the top panels of this table are reversible, therefore making it so versatile. We decided to stick two DUPLO Compatible Peel 'n Stick Baseplates on the panels, leaving the reverse side blank so that the table can still be used for homework, and arts and crafts.
Simply measure up the inner area of the storage boxes and mark these measurements out on the baseplate using DUPLOs. Use a sharp knife to cut along the line of the bricks, fold the baseplate until it snaps and then cut off the backing.
Once the baseplates are cut to size, peel off the backing and stick them on the table panels. It helps to line this up with the storage box to make sure that when you flip over the panel, the baseplate slots within the rim of the storage box. You can always mark it out with pencil first if you like.
Once both baseplates are stuck down, all you need to do is add your building bricks to the storage boxes!
We love that you can have several different play set ups using this table. If you have younger builders you can place one of the panels on the floor for them to work on.
You can choose whether you want just one panel on for building, or if you want to take the storage boxes out and have both panels on for a bigger building surface.
Having a place to store your bricks, and a surface to play on, is great for encouraging collaborative play and learning!
