Many of you have asked for the information on how I built my work table and shelves in my scrap room. I already owned the two base cabinets I used. They are 24" wide and have 3 drawers. They are standard counter top height, about 36" high. I purchased them over 10 years ago and painted them white.
For the counter top, we found white laminate shelving components. I have two counter top pieces, each 3/4" thick by 2 feet by 6 feet. This makes the total counter top 4 feet by 6 feet. We purchased the table "legs" at the home improvement store. They are actually for use in staircases, but worked great here. We cut them to height and used brackets to secure them to the counter tops. We also connected the counter tops to each other, and secured them to the cabinets so that everything would be sturdy. I painted the unfinisehed edges of the counter tops to give it a finished look, and we were done.
Because I already owned the cabinets, the table cost about $100. I love to craft on it!
