We recently decided that Bryan needed a home office where he could lay-out plans from work. Preferably a place where there is no concern for jelly or crafting residue (which nixed out dining room table!). We'd talked before about him taking over my small craft room, and this past weekend we made it a reality.
He thought the most economical way to get a layout table would be a cheap door on simple legs.
I got to thinking, "Hey! This has possibilities!" So he picked up one for me too. We bought two bookcases at Walmart to support the door (which he attached with screws). The table is about kitchen counter height, perfect for cutting out patterns and scrapbooking standing up which I enjoy for some reason. Total cost for mine was around $50.
Bryan is already reading books about how to finish this corner of the basement for my dream craft room, but for now I'm just giddy about my big table!
