The video above gives you a clear guide on how to turn the coffee table into a LEGO compatible table, but here's a few extra tips.
Coffee table assembly-
The great thing about the YPPERLIG coffee table is that it is SUPER easy to assemble. Here are the IKEA instructions in case you want a peak.
Apply some pressure-
When you stick down the Peel 'n Stick baseplate, be sure to apply some pressure so that the adhesive contacts the table surface fully.
Prevent brick spillages-
The magnetic tins are what you would expect for a $, so we've got a little trick to help make them more secure. Wrap a thin layer of the nylon electrical tape around the top of the container. This provides some extra grip for the lid and stops the brick spillages.
We love helping our customers to create LEGO compatible tables that suit their needs. The IKEA YPPERLIG hack is ideal for those living in small spaces who want to keep things looking clean and trendy. Happy building friends!
