Featured in the PR book!
Last month I purchased a buffet from a yard sale. I then purchased an unfinished 36" wide door from our local home improvement store. I painted the buffet and door with high gloss paint and attached the door to the top of of the buffet with stick on velcro (incase I ever want to use the buffet for another purpose). TA DAAAAAA! A great cutting table at the perfect height. The drawers of the buffet are perfect to keep my cutting tools, marking materials, tape meaures, rulers, etc. The perfect cutting table for under $10.00. (as soon as I down load my camera, I will include a photo)

The moral of the story is . . learn to look at things with your sewing room in mind and not for which such items were originally intended.

That's great about the height. One of the nice things about using an indoor door is that you can push pins directly into it a little(if you need to for any reason).

Love this idea. I will readjust my perspective from obvious to creative. Thanks for the inspiration

Wow what a great idea. I could also use it for my knitting machine to sit on. Thanks!

I place a length of mdf onto the surface of my ironing board. I can alter the height of the board to suit what I'm doing - cutting out fabric or card crafting and then when I need to do regular ironing just lift off the mdf and lean it against a wall. I've fixed a sticky back tape measure to the mdf so I can do quick measure for lengths of fabric.
