Not long ago Hubby helped me make a new cutting table out of a folding table, conduit and a piece of wood. It worked great although lifting the burlap and finding rulers was a bit of a pain...the rulers wouldn't stay upright. Not a big deal though. But then my Dad showed me a picture of a cupboard he got at an auction. I asked him what he was going to do with it and then asked him dimensions!! It would work perfectly for a cutting table and it had doors and drawers to hold all my tools and rulers!! He brought it down when he came on the weekend.....my birthday present! I like rustic but this was a little too rustic for my sewing room. So today I cleaned it and slapped some chalk paint on. I'm happy, happy, happy with the results!!!!
It's definitely not a high end piece of furniture....just a little less rustic. :)
