Ikea Trofast Toy Storage Units

To build the Ikea Trofast activity table all you need is two of these Trofast toy storage units. I bought two and pushed them up against each other to build one big table. You can find the link to the Ikea Trofast table below the picture.

Bins for Ikea Trofast

The ikea trofast has multiple options for storage bins. They have three different sizes and different colors. It depends on what you need for your toys. You can see the different sizes and colors below. Links to the bins below the picture.

As you can see I decided to make one side for their wooden trains and the other side for their legos. If you are not sure what size of bins to get, it really depends on what toys you want to store. I loved the bigger bins for the wooden tracks and the Duplo legos. I used the smaller bins for the smaller pieces so it was easier to find things.

I love the idea of having storage under the table. It keeps everything organized and easy for my kids to clean up. Everything has a spot which helps kids!

How to make the activity table

The Ikea trofast is really simple to build. You have to first build the two ikea trofast units. The next thing you have to do is just push them up against each other. You can use a metal connector to screw them together on the inside or just leave them as is. I have carpet and the trofast is heavy so I knew it wouldn’t slide away from the other trofast.

Connect them with hardware

You can use the utrusta connection hardware to connect them on the inside. I would do one on each side. This is totally optional and not necessary if you do not want to do it.
