Anyone who is serious about crafting knows – all the supplies that accumulate take up a lot of space. We tend to throw it all together in boxes, containers, or closets to get it out of the way when we aren’t using it. Then when we’re at our craft table, in need of a certain something, it is no where to be found! Here are some helpful ways to keep the clutter down and find the craft table that is right for you.
Some are lucky enough to have a craft room with a permanent craft table in it. For those of us that aren’t so lucky, the kitchen table usually does the trick. It is not wise to use the kitchen table, however, because of the risk of damage.
When you are using glues, paints, or sharp objects like knives or scissors, your kitchen table can pay the price.
As an alternative, consider using a folding table. You can find sturdy, durable folding tables in a variety of sizes and for a variety of prices. I have even seen a very creative suggestion including sawhorses and a flat-surface door. Use adjustable sawhorses as the legs of your table. Use the door as the top. For added protection, you can seal the door. The advantage to folding tables, or the sawhorse table, is that they can be taken down and stored under beds or in closets when not in use.
