Craft room - work area table / counter top
I wanted to create a long table/countertop area where I could set up my regular sewing machine and my serger machine so I don't have to move them around. I bought two base cabinets and a base set of drawers and spaced them out so that I would have two seating areas. The base cabinets were stained clear. I then "built" the table/counter top. Taking two 12 x 2 x 10 boards I glued them together. Filled the spaces and holes. Sanded it down. Minwaxed it. Clear coated. And put it on top of the base cabinets creating my two seating areas. Affixed the top to the bases and there we go! By the way, I cut down the top to 9 foot long. This item is heavy. I did it on my own; but it would've been smarter to have help. ;-) I still have to paint the sides of the cabinets but that will happen soon. This project cost about $500 - $550.
