Craft Table

You may have seen (and lusted over) these cleverly constructed project tables on pinterest:

In my search, the cheapest one I have found is $399.  That's a little steep for me!


...I love the way it looks, and it seems really functional, so I decided I MUST have one, somehow.  The link above gives a step by step on how to build the table top.  The only wood working tool I have right now is a hack saw and a sander, so I wanted to come up with a simple way to build the desk.

I stumbled across these beauties at Home Depot.

The nine cube shelf is only $44.98 right now, so I bought two with a gift card I got for my birthday.

There was a super helpful man in the lumber department who told me how I could easily get a sturdy table top on using a strong wood glue.  It wouldn't fit in my car that night (I had baby with me.), so I plan to go back soon to buy a huge piece of wood.  I have some plans for the desk that are slightly different from the picture above.  I will be revealing the end result within the next month.

I am so excited!  Wish me luck!

Now, I need to find some of those cute, colorful cubby boxes for a good price.

The table top won't fit in my car, so I'm waiting for a family member with a truck to come visit!
The final product will be posted at the end of August.  I can't wait!


  1. Drooling... I love that!!! Excited to see pics!

  2. Very cool! I've always wanted one of those tables, but I don't know where I'd put it. I've got some of those colorful bins. They are Martha Stewart brand ... should be on the same aisle as the shelves you bought.

  3. Thanks Anna,
    I'll be posting pics asap!
    I think I'll be getting some of her brand, because they fit perfectly in the cubbies.
