What a difference a little bit [well, quite a bit] of storage can do! I finished painting the two base units, my room-mate took off the legs & apron off the kitchen table, . . . then poof, my glass project table was up.
At 5 ft. long, the tabletop is plenty long enough for me to split it for different purposes. Right now one part has my board & pattern with the cut glass for the bed panels. The other side has the cutting grid on it.
Still working on organizing everything, I’ve got books & some storage boxes on the shelf unit facing the living room. I’m going to put two ivory fabric cubes [yeah, I know, they’re everywhere in my place] on the bottom shelf.
Even with another bookcase with wire shelves, I still needed a bit more space, so I re-organized the wicker bookcase on the wall behind the table.
The good news is my tool basket has a spot for when I’m not using it on the table. The bad news — I had to stash a few books away — hmmm, still need bookcases!
My inspiration was the Pottery Barn Bedford Project Table Set. I modified it to suit the old kitchen tabletop & allow for expansion with more base units.
In the next phase I’d like something like these beauties from PBTeen with a ledge between them for my laptop & a hutch above.
For now I’m fine with this setup. I’ve already cut some glass on it & hey, no aching back. 😮
I did have some problems with the head on my glass cutter so I’m not sure if I need a new one. But some way or another, I’m going to finish cutting the last colour [red] for my bed panels this weekend. 😀
