Brilliant idea for a wall: LEGO IT

June 7 |

HGTV made itself useful by posting a roundup of ten ideas for kids' rooms — but this project in particular is bully for nerdy grown-ups everywere: Buy a ton of LEGO plates, affix to wall, enhance your awesomeness.

My partner, for one, will love this.

  1. I want one!!!! I would deff use the legos like fridge magnets and spell things out lol

  2. Ooh neat. I'm suddenly reminded of Pee Wee's playhouse and I still wish I could figure out how to do a Pee Wee's playhouse toy vault with that glittery wall effect.

  3. Dude, sweet! You could also make a smaller one and frame it.. with a lego frame? This would be awesome in an office!

    10 agree
  4. my 6 year old son is lego!nerding out. He's coming up with all sorts of his own ideas. Its adorable. I know what our next playroo-project is!

  5. i was perfectly okay with renting my apartment until i saw this… if i ever buy a home, THIS IS SO HAPPENING!!!

  6. We want to have a games/craft room in our new house, and my husband loves lego. I can definitely doing this to a wall of that room.

    2 agree
  7. This would be an awesome way to build a climbing wall for our kittens!!! I wish I still had the huge box of LEGO that I had until college.

    2 agree
    • seems like a cute idea for cats and kittens but remember, those little lego pieces come off easy and can be eaten and end up choking your poor kitties. 🙁 if you do this make sure to super glue the small legos to the board.

  8. I totally want to do this in my classroom!!! And yes, I teach high school! It could work as a poetry wall!

    3 agree
  9. What a fun idea! I've featured this in the weekly Things I Love slot over at Pencils and Whatnot – I hope that's alright with you.

  10. Great Idea but no way would i want it in my house. Why…Because you would have pieces all over the floor and when you vacuumed you would be constantly sucking up pieces.

    1 agrees
  11. I think I'd rather have Velcro on my walls and a Velcro suit so I could stick to them.

    1 agrees
  12. This has got to be one of the coolest (geekiest?) ideas I have heard in a while! I just love it. MAN I miss my LEGOs. I do not however miss leaving one on the floor and stepping on it with a bare foot… ouch!

    And velcro would be VERY fun, btw. I'd probably be so excited I'd go through the wall! 😛

  13. I want one of these for my kids. I will admit that their dad and i would probably spend more time playing with it though.
