A few weeks ago I turned an Ikea shelf into a dollhouse/bench to give away for Sophia's 40 Day Challenge. My sister-in-law asked if I would also like to make something to give away to a boy. I decided to turn the same shelf (different color) into a Lego bench.
To start, I gathered some paint chip cards from Lowe's and drew windows and doors on them using Sharpie marker.
I cut the paint chips at varying lengths to create a skyscraper scene and then attached them to one of the shelf nooks using spray adhesive.
For the other nook, I created a wooded park scene with trees, clouds and sunshine.
I bought the green and blue baseplates from the Lego store and attached them using Gorilla glue.
Finally, I added two white cushions on top to make the bench a little more cozy.
Hopefully this Lego bench will make a little boy very happy!
