During the week one challenge, when I cleaned and organized my sewing space studio….it amazed me at how much my cutting table was lacking.
About five years ago or so my husband and I constructed this beast…
I had a vision of the height I wanted for a cutting table so that it would be comfortable as I stood…(I know there are lots of options out there. IKEA and all that. trust me I’ve seen all the Pinterest photos, blogs and suggestions from others sewists.
Here’s the thing.
Most of all of the furniture in my sewing studio is either clearance items, thrifted pieces or hand me downs.
So we went to the ReStore and found a an old bathroom vanity… And this creation came to life. My husband took it apart and added a little bit of height, shelves, a particleboard top, and casters so that it rolls. This thing is HEAVY!
Like I said, this was five or six years ago now, and since my sewing studio has been a complete and utter mess I’ve been able to ignore the fact that it’s ugly as sin. Well, no longer.
When I swivel my sewing chair around I saw this blank ugly piece of….of….Furniture. 🙂
So the past couple weeks I went to work on making it something I’d like to look at.
and what makes me happier than colorful beautiful fabric?
I sectioned it off and went to work Mod-Podging in pieces of my favorite stash to make it an art piece.
I still have room and things to add to the collage… But it is complete at least for now
