I have been dreaming about a purpose built sewing table for a long long time. But always put it off as being to much of an expense and I would rather spend my money elsewhere (you can never have to much fabric right?)
And if I couldn’t have a ‘proper’ sewing table then maybe an extension table would do. So I went online to see what was available to buy. Again too expensive. You see we are also saving for a holiday to ‘the big smoke’ and I have a long list of IKEA needs.
So I asked my hubby if he could make me an extension table for my machine with supplies we had either lying around or would be relatively cheap to buy. And much to my surprise he said yes AND started doing it straight away! I think I was in shock there for a while.
But yesterday morning I asked the question and yesterday afternoon I had a purpose built extension table for my sewing machine!
What we used:
Some recycled ply wood (900mm x 1200mm)
Wooden boom handle
We measured up my sewing machine and cut out the space about 20cm in from the front of the ply wood.
The legs were attached with screws, then it was sanded and varnished and now it is ready for use!
All up this project cost under $50 and I am so wishing that I did it sooner.
Do you have a purpose built sewing table or an extension table for your machine?
