Is your craftroom as messy as mine? I really needed to do something about it! First, I needed a new and bigger craft table!
How to Build a Thrifty Craft Table
FIND OUT HOW TO BUILD A CUSTOM STANDING LARGE DIY CRAFT TABLE ON A BUDGET WITH THIS IKEA HACK. THIS THRIFTY TABLE TOP IS ONLY 50$.
I’ve been wanting a craft table for sooooo long! The biggest desk I had was around 30″ x 40″. And most of the time, I couldn’t find it cause there were too many things piled up on it!!!
This new one is 36″ x 80″!
Can you guess what I used?
It’s a primed masonite door!
It's really easy to make!
Install the door on top of the shelf unit. Make sure it is levelled. While someone holds the door in place, fix the door to the wall with L brackets.
Next, position the shelf unit and fix it to the door with smaller L brackets
Paint the door after it is installed!! And do you think I painted under?
Are you insane? No time for that!!
Since it's a door, you'll also need to sand the edges.
When the paint was dry, I added 2 coats of Minwax Polycrylic to protect the surface. Each time I use this product, it amazes me how easy it is to apply and it has almost no odour.
So, in one afternoon, everything was done! Just my kinda project!
