In the past I have shown pictures of my craftroom makeover. Well I have made another change to it.
Lately, I have been sewing more than usual. I generally cut my fabric out on the dining room table or the hard wood floors annd we all know the hazards (sore back/knees) of doing this. I knew there had to be a better way of cutting. One day I found myself sitting down here in the craftroom day dreaming of changes. So off I went to search the internet for some creativity. I was impressed by all the sewing rooms I found. Wow some are just unbelievable.
After looking for a while, I knew what I wanted to do. You see I have an 9 square cubbie shelving system and I wanted to make a peninsula out of it. My idea was to pull it away from the wall 4 feet. So my cutting area would be 4x3. I talked my husband into this idea and off to Home Depot we went. We bought a full sheet of MDF and had the store employee cut it down. Not only did I get the 4x3 countertop, I also have two large shelves below.
One day while my husband was at worked I took the organizer shelf out to the garage, sanded it and painted it white. Next was the countertop's turn for a coat of black paint. Yes, I have to make sure my countertops match the other one in the room.
I am very happy with the way my peninsula came out. It is the perfect height for cutting without breaking my back.
By the way, I had talked my husband into making a flip up iron board on the other side.
