DIY craft table : you’ll never guess what I used as the table top!

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 couln’t find it cause there was too many thing piled up on it!!!

This one is 36″ x 80″!

Can you guess what I used?

It’s a primed masonite door! Heck yeah!

The IKEA furniture is a white TOMNÄS shelf unit. It’s more refined than the popular Kallax and it’s the perfect hight for a standing desk (which I wanted).

Easy steps :

  • Install the door on top of the shelf unit
  • Fix the door to the wall with L brackets
  • Position the shelt 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!! That’s why my blog is called #projectsforabusylife !!

Since it’s a door, the edges might need a little sanding.

So, in one afternoon, everything was done! Just my kinda project!

A bit of reality

I’ll be honnest with you, my craftroom doesn’t look like a picture from a magasine and I don’t think it ever will. I have a simple explanation for that : I use my craftroom!

So, as you might have notice, all the picture are framed very tight. Well, that’s because of the next project on the list :

The mess of my craft room. Plenty of work to be done!

yep… plenty of work to be done!!

 
So if you liked my craft table, don’t forget to pin it!
