When I started this craft room process, I wanted a table coming out into the center of the room. A lot like a kitchen island. I wanted to be able to use my sewing machine and have room to pull fabric through, kid's school projects that seem to always use poster board, and just have a space where more than one person could be sitting comfortably doing a project together. We looked into doing cabinets that resembled a kitchen island, or buying a table to go in the center. Both were pretty expensive, and kind of generic to me. We came up with the idea to use a French door as the top and have my hubby make the legs.
