Craft table with storage

Having storage along with your work surface is something that I grew to like so much, that when I recently updated my sewing table, I decided to include storage, so I could make the most out of the space around my table.

Simple craft table

Another option is to have a very simple frame for your craft table, this allows you to add a rolling cart underneath, or it just makes the room look airier. This is the option I decided to go for my first craft table, just two simple sawhorses and a tabletop with a big cutting mat.

I would love a sewing table like this too, but first need to convince my husband that it would look good sharing his office space (which is a brilliant room for light)!

Those tables look awesome! I was looking to do the same thing in the future. It can be pretty intimidating especially if you've never done anything like this before. Thanks for the inspiration ;]
