Remember my craft table I shared in my last post?
I got it all finished up!!
Here it is…
Here is how I finished it all up!!
I took my three separate pieces up into my loft where my table will be and put the top piece of mdf on my two bases.  I go everything lined up perfectly and then used a 1 1/4″ wood screw on each corner to secure the top.  I attached the screws from the underside of my bases so you wouldn’t see them on the top.
I then added my hidden shelves by attaching 1×2 to the sides of my bases.  I did two on each side to build 2 shelves.
From the front…
Then I added my shelves.  I had some scrap wood for these and did not bother painting it because nobody but me will see it… Whoop!
When I attached my shelves I placed them 1/4″ back from the front of the table.  I did this for my next step.
Next I added my bead board.  I had leftover from my last table project and I painted it in the garage before attaching it.  I cut mine to fit just into my open space and attached it with my nailer to the back of the shelves.
Bigger Pic…
And a look from the backside…
I then added a 1×3 to both the top and the bottom to trim it out.  I had scraps in my garage I used.
After attaching my top and bottom I added my sides using 1×2.
I then caulked the trim and painted it to match the blue of the table.  I loved it at this point but thought I could chic it up just a bit more! 
I bought a $7 wood scroll from Lowe’s and painted it.
After it dried I used my hot glue gun (don’t tell) to attach it to my bead board. 
I found baskets at Michael’s 40% off and added them.  Now I am ready to add all my junk important crafting supplies πŸ™‚
What do you think?!?

I love it!!  I made my bottom side shelves just a bit taller than the plans to fit both my sewing machines.  It will be so nice to finally get my stuff out of my kitchen, dining room, bedroom and closet πŸ™‚
