Lego Figurine Storage – Goodwill Before and After

Goodwill is my go-to place for my flighty ideas and project hopefuls.  My boys have all these Lego Figurines and they’re scattered throughout the house.  I’ve wondered to myself how to display them in a nice clean way.  I have also lurked through the Goodwill aisles and have seen these wooden trays wondering to myself, ‘what could I do with those?’  Then, all of the sudden, it donned on me!!!

What a concept!

All I did was spray paint the wood in a metallic silver paint.
