My best friend is just starting school to become a massage therapist. I wanted to show my support so here was my "Good Luck" gift! My husband and I actually made this at zero cost to us, but if you had to buy everything we used I would say this project would still be under $50 dollars! It ends up being about 6 1/2 feet long and will hold around 350 pounds. We went to our local Big Lots! and bought a heavy duty table months ago and ended up not using it, but we got ours for about $25 (it doesn't have to be pretty at all considering it will be covered) I started digging through my fabric bin and found some great upholstery fabric in this fuzzy blue grey color, very soft and warm figured it would be a great cover for our massage table! Then headed to my treasure room (also known a junk room but hey treasure sounds better!) for something to stuff it with, found a unopened pack of eggcrate foam bedcovers. BINGO! 3 hours, 25 nails, a bunch of staples later we had our table finished! Wash, Rinse, Repeat for the smaller table (I like this because you can move it support the head, or feet, or arms...whatever needs the attention! But it is no way a necessity) Feedback welcome! Enjoy!

Just the table (the blue thing was a afterthought, its for ankle, knee, or neck support)


annnnnd here is one with the table extender!

That is an awsome gift, but for hygenic reasons, you may want to cover it with something that can be sprayed with sanitizer. Most massage tables are covered in vinyl or leather then flat sheets that can be washed between clients. I hope this is constructive and not overly critical. Just wanted to mention a practical note if you wanted to improve it.

Oh! the photos are of just the massage table but we also made fitted sheets out of a Van Gogh shower curtains to give a cleanable surface that he could remove it ever had to be replaced! Grin

What a fantastic job you did and a great favor for your friend.  A few years ago we bought a portable table for our DIL and it wasn't cheap even with a huge discount.  I'm sure your friend is extremely grateful.
