Finishing The New Craft Room


After the polyurethane dried on our finished counter tops, we attached them from underneath with screws.  The cabinets have little plastic doohickeys in the corners for this.


You'll notice a lower section. This is where I will use the sewing machine.  A taller counter is too hard on my back.  It is at 29 inches and works well for me.  Lee screwed 2X2 pine to the wall at the right height to support the counter top.


I used caulk where the top met the wall to hide the places where the wall wasn't perfectly straight.  The cut, on the other hand WAS perfect, she said modestly.

Then I could start clean up and putting away my crafting supplies.


Lee found some great shelves and brackets.  He installed them over the sewing table so I can reach for supplies from a sitting position.


I ordered some colorful drawer pulls to give a bit of whimsy.


The things you can find on Amazon!



I am ready for my next sewing project.  I have a quilt my sister started.  I may finish that.  Or make a new basket.  So many possibilities!

Behind the work station I set up the table with my Cricut.  It is now ready for card making.


What will I do???


  1. The new craft room looks very nice and I especially liked your choices of the assorted knobs...very creative, as always. Looking forward to seeing some of your future creations, Rebecca.

    1. Thanks! I really like the knobs and they were cheaper than almost any others I looked at. I'm working on a quilt and should post about it....someday.
