40 B4 40: Build Something

For the past year, I've been wanting a craft table, but nothing I ever found was just perfect (read: big enough). Then, about a month ago, I ran across a blog that had plans for a simple saw horse table, and I knew I'd found not only my table, but an opportunity to check #37 Build Something off my 40 Things I Want to Do Before I Turn 40 list.

First, I built the saw horse "legs" for the table.  And stained them black.

Then, I found an old door and stained it black.
The saw horses really work!
Then....  TA-DA!
I can't wait to have this covered with a craft project!

This is literally a huge improvement over my old craft table!
Too tiny!

I can't wait to build something else!


  1. I'm proud of you! I love Ana White, too. Good job--your craft room looks great with this addition. I'm off to build this table to tote with me to craft shows.

  2. Thanks Marcelle! It was pretty easy and I LOVE it for scrapbooking and sewing projects! I can really spread out. Good luck on yours!
