Lego TV TRAY

Lego TV TRAY


 
 
Once in awhile I find myself building lego with my son. Now he has a full out Lego building center with a large desk and apothecary style cabinets to store his lego pieces in. So he has his system down pat. Me on the other hand, I get kicked to the curb with the mere morsels of what he will let me build with. I really like it. But the small small pieces and my poor eyesight make it hard for me to really enjoy the process of building with it. Hence the following piece was created with me in mind. I have an edge on this table, so small pieces don't wonder off and I can see against the contrast of this table just fine. So it is a win win for me, my boy and the time we get to spend together.
 
This tray was completely covered with Mod Podge - High Gloss. I planned out my paper pieces ahead of time, cut and trimmed the paper as required and started gluing everything down. I first applied Mod Podge to the table and then to the back of my paper pieces. I used my hands mostly in smoothing out the pieces to the edges. It took some time and patience for everything to settle and dry. But I love the results and I love that this is so unique, it adds a ton of flare to my boy's workspace. I might add that I think I build better when I use it to. LOL 
 
I hope you've enjoyed this piece. I think any young person who is into Lego would love this piece. I also know that it would make a GREAT GIFT.
