C … My DIY Craft table
I saw a fun idea about making a craft table … it was a seemingly easy idea.
I thought, “I can make that!” and I set about making one for myself with a few changes!
This was so incredibly easy to put together!!! Here is how …
1. Buy Chair of your liking and assemble.
I love this bar stool … just the right height and so comfy!
2. Buy 2 bookshelves and assemble
3. Buy table top of your choice.
(I chose to buy one that was already white and shiny with no work required! I wanted to keep this EASY! I cut the piece to be just as wide as the shelving I chose and the length that I wanted my work space to be. My table is 3′ X 6′)
I want a nice BIG space to create!!!
4. Buy accessories of your choice
You can see in the picture above that I chose black cubby boxes. I also purchased wall protectors to adhere to the sides of the table to keep from me or little ones from hurting themselves if they bumped into it.
Let the fun begin!!!
I painted the sides white, to cover where I cut and the wood was exposed, added Washi tape to the sides to add some detail …
I also added a yard stick to the top to help me measure items as I work.
(It is adhered permanently with screws so it doesn’t walk off)
I wanted to personalize it with something that had meaning for me. I chose three works that would describe what I would be doing in this space.
I got to use my #Silhouette and cut the words out of vinyl to attach to my table. This is when you get to go into creative mode … and think about how you might put them into something more than just three words. I attached them where the letters were the same.
I wanted an image of something that was personal to me … and after thinking and thinking for days … I came up with the idea to use my blog name in a thought bubble since it is something that was created in my mind about a year ago.
Sappy? Maybe, but still cute and just right for me!
*** side note: The table top is screwed into the bookshelf tops to keep secure! ***
I accessorized with a lamp that Mr Man bought me at Ikea as a crafting gift to go with my new crafting work space, My #Silhouette, a pretty cup to hold pens and pencils, and an organizer to keep things picked up completed my space.
Maybe you can use this idea … it is totally doable and easy to put together!
Let the creating begin!!!
