I copied the text from today's blog entry... I'm OVER THE MOON about this table and would love to answer any questions!
What is your blog address? I would love to follow you there, too.
Can you see how green I am from there!! This is amazing and will now be on my dream list if I ever had enough space to have it. You have got to be over the moon excited congrats this seems so perfect!!!
True It has been on my dream list ever since I saw it on Pinterest last fall... and my friend made it even better so yes I am just "Pinch Me - I Must Be Dreaming" to see it in my room. I've had a hard time sleeping the last two nights!
I am so work-table envy right now! To see it on Pinterest is one thing but to see it in someone's room that I know is even better! I want to see pictures as you fill up those drawers. And the batting storage area is genius until you have more fabric that you need to store! What a thrill and I can see why you haven't been able to sleep!
P.S. Tell your handyman he did a much better job of finishing off the base. No ugly bolts showing thru the backside for the casters and the melamine is ideal!
Terryt1955 Thank you! I will add more pictures as I pull it all together and yes, my handyman is FAB! He builds homes and loves to work in his shop... I will be calling on him again when I'm ready for a recessed sewing table solution.
I just showed my husband this inspired table and all he did was grunt. I need a handyman!
Oh my gosh! You are so lucky!! I wish it were mine!
This is amazing...I'm super jealous of you right now. I am using my kitchen as a sewing room with my dining room table as my work area...Your handyman needs to service Arizona or I need to move to Minnesota LOL. So happy for you it really is a great space.
I have a wonderful cutting table, but I have to say, this is amazing! So many storage options! I know you will get so much use from it! I love your ideas about magnetic strips and hooks and towel bars! Pictures, please, when those get added!
I pinned this. Looks wonderful. I like mine but I think it's only 1/4 the size of yours. Congratulations for dreaming and planning and finding the handyman!
Jealous over here and I have a great set-up. Some day.... Does the height work for you?
Stamdl This is amazing. Just think of all the UFO's you'll get done now. Holy cow!!! Not to mention all the new projects you'll be starting!!
Thanks for sharing, Stamdl. This is my new someday dream...
I've got the expidit shelving in one section of my quilt area - and now I think I may get one of those shelf inserts for my scraps. Oh Ikea here I come
Capetowngirl I have become a huge IKEA fan... I just think their stuff is really well done! And I feel like I can assemble anything they make which helps... My son has a college visit at the end of July and I'll be hitting IKEA. My list is already started!
This is why I wish we had an IKEA close-by! (soooo many ikea/ikeahacks are pinned on my boards LOL). I've had this pinned forever as well...and to top it off, with the help of your fab handyman, you've improved it! Congrats and enjoy!! :)
I saw this on Ikea Hackers also and how fun to see it here! I love it, just wish my room was large enough. Maybe I should knock out a wall and expand to the next bedroom . . . Hmmmmm you've got me planning again!
Kathie Yes, you certainly need room for it! I'm really glad I waited until it was in my room before buying anymore furniture because it fills up the room. I love that it is heavy enough not to move while I'm working on it but that I can push it up against the wall easily.After a month of use I am just so happy with both the table surface and the storage I've gained!
After I saw this, I thought, "I've got to have something like this". Had to go to Chicago (the nearest IKEA) to get stuff for my son's apartment so I got the pieces to make something similar. Hubby and son just finished building it for me. Thank you so much for sharing this!!! I'm so excited to reorganize and get using my new cutting table.
HawkFan How fun! You will love it... Along with my design wall it has made my quilting life so much better. Enjoy!
The design wall is next!
My jaw just hit the floor. I'm with Terryt1955 . I have work table envy. I wish I had an ikea nearby and I wish I had your handyman.
