Nathan and I have been planning to build a craft table since the beginning of the year. This is where the crafting was happening prior to my customized table:
So not ideal! And so disorganized. Blah. This was the inspiration I found on Pinterest:
This lovely table was available at Pottery Barn for the small price of your first-born child. Nathan said “I can make that. Anything else you want in it or just cubbies?” Well since you asked…why yes I’ll take 3 cubbies, slots for paper, and on the other side I’d like just shelves for bigger items (for the Cricut and bigger boxes/baskets). We had to make our version a little smaller because it has to fit in our bedroom, so mine is only 2 cubbies deep instead of 3 like the picture above. He took last Monday off and got started. What a guy! Here’s some pictures of the craft table comin’ together:
|Yes, I did help 🙂 Just don’t look closely at my painting 😛|
It was cool to watch it come together…and in such a short amount of time! The guy is a machine I tell ya! I would explain how he did everything, sizes, etc…but I know none of that info. If you want it, ask me, I’ll ask him, and get back to you 🙂
So here’s the finished product!! I wasn’t too thrilled about him taking a picture while I was in the middle of a project…but he said “this is how it’s supposed to look!” 😛
It’s so wonderful. He did an excellent job. It’s exactly what I wanted. And don’t you love the green stool I found at local antique shop?! It adds color and character…it’s also the perfect height for…*ahem* shorter persons.
Both Nathan and I agree that if we had to do it over again, I’d leave the backs off of the shelves and cubbies so I could reach through instead of around. Also we would paint before putting it together…no bueno. But we both still love it and it makes our room feel organized again…Ahhhhhh 🙂
Hope you all had a Happy Easter celebrating the resurrection of our Savior!
Grace & Peace
