DIY Sewing Cutting Counter
I am in the process of setting up a sewing/craft room in our basement. My daughter & I call it our craft cave, although there is very good light from 2 windows. This room is coming together from scratch. It started with the removal of the old drywall and carpeting after our sewage flood last April. After new drywall, paint, and tile the room was a blank slate. We were just going to have it be storage and a guest room, but we don't have many guests. My sewing and my daughter's crafts seemed to be strewn around our dining room, so it make sense for us to have a dedicated space. The room measures 11x11. The door & closet are along the west wall. Tables with machines on top line the south wall, which has a window. The north wall now hosts the cutting counter that we created.
After some research I learned that the ideal height for a cutting counter is belly button height. For me that is 42". I looked around and found some bookshelves at Target that are nearly 41" tall. They were on sale last week for $17.50 and I bought 3. My hubby & daughter put them together and I put them out in an L shape.
