The search

I am in the market for a crafting table for my creative space. I saw this one at Target. It's three pieces and all together it costs $550. I like it a lot. The ends are bookcases which can hold 12 x 12 scrapbook paper. It's a knock off of the pottery barn table. The price does not include the stool or shipping. Target has 15% off too. This is the pottery barn table. It costs $1099 plus $200 for shipping. I always liked this table but I just cannot let go of this much money for a crafting table. I tend to be fickle and I like to change a lot. So I didn't want a table this expensive to end up in my basement unused.

I have to hand it to Pottery barn. They do have some wonderful ideas.

I also found a similar table at Pier 1 Imports. It's smaller and the bookcases on the end would not hold 12 X 12 paper. I liked it but the smaller bookcases are a turn off for me. The price is around $400 and I have a gift certificate for $25 there plus a coupon for 15% off. I could definitely get it more reasonable there but it wouldn't suit my purposes. Phooey!

Here are some of the other things I have for my creative space. These are organizers for my wall. I would keep things like letters, notes and other miscellaneous items I need for crafting.

I was also thinking about putting one in my laundry room too. I bought these at Home Goods. I really like them.
I also have a double 12 x 12 scrapbook page frame I purchased. I thought how cool it would be to have a double 12 x 12 scrapbook page frame. I just happened to be working in Iowa City, IA and the neighboring town called Cedarville has two scrapbook stores. I went into the one called Reminisce and I found it! Of course I snatched it up! I just couldn't leave without it. I plan on doing a double page spread in coordinating colors of my scrapbook room and posting it on my wall somewhere. Here is a photo of the frame.
Well I have plenty of decisions to make. I love the craft tables shown but I have a dilemna. I would rather sit in an executive chair with comfortable padding rather than on a stool. I could manage with the stool but I would rather have the executive chair for comfort. However the style of crafting tables available are not very worthy of my needs. I am considering a small dining room table. I am looking for something aesthetically pleasing to the eye and not just utilitarian. I guess the search will continue until I find something I like.

the hight of the table is an issue for me too. (no short jokes allowed) I prefer a lower table with a comfy chair too. Looking at that stool I don't think I would get much scrappin done!

The crafting table is really nice… Talking about all this scrap booking is causing my hands to itch…. Lol.. Seriously, I’m thinking about adding it to my collection of crafts. Have you considered going to a thrift shop to look for a crafting table… My dh got be a nice seminar table 24 x 60 and it folds for easy storage for $10 and its perfect for sewing… Now I am constantly asking him has he stopped by the thrift shop lately…lol
