Still, I liked the idea of a table that I could open up for projects and tuck out of the way when I didn't need it. What to do, what to do!
Then inspiration struck! I remembered that last year I'd given Charming this Ikea table for use in his new apartment. (I bought the table three years ago for roughly $150. Mr. & Mrs. R were in Portland at the time and were kind enough to swing by and pick it up for me. Wasn't that sweet of them?)
Anyway, a quick call to Charming confirmed that he was amenable to a trade, so while Superman was home, we made the switch. (I needed Superman...this table weighs 100 pounds...solid wood, anyone?!)
Six castors later, I have my own craft table for a fraction of the cost! That Superman! He's so handy to have around! It opens up on both sides, or just one.
And when I'm done, it just sits under the window until the next time.
Pretty cool, isn't it? I just love repurposing things and giving them a new life.
