My cutting table. w00t!
So, it's a little messy, but you get the idea! I built myself a new cutting table a couple of weeks ago. It is made from two very old, very free, very lead paint covered solid wood doors, some old table legs and a dining table top that I picked up at Goodwill bins last year for $5. Sweet! And I love it. I left all of the hardware on the doors because I really loved the way they look. I cut the table legs up to make myself a shelf with the second door.
The bunn feet that are on the bottom I found last year in a sea-side thrift store. They were four for $1. I bought two sets of them. I was ECSTATIC when I found them. Have you priced bunn feet lately? I had no specific plan in mind for them at the time, but I knew eventually I'd find myself saying, man, I wish I had some bunn feet for this project.... and Whalah! I think everyone else that I was with at the time thought I was crazy. Which is their usual reaction to me in thrift stores and at junk piles. This was one of those fabulous thrift stores that is just filled with randomness and most of it is 50 cents or $1. HEAVEN!
ON THE TABLE: Layers and layers of felt from making poodle skirts. Our elementary school has an annual sock hop event and this year as a fund raiser we sold poodle skirts. I donated my time and skilz to make the skirts for the fund raiser. I made 35. It was a really enjoyable project and I look forward to doing it again next year.
