I just bought my first house in November and am excited to furnish and decorate my sewing room. I know I will be getting a white Ikea Expedit 5x5 cube bookcase for all of my fabric, but am unsure of what to use for my sewing machine/serger table.
My original plan was to purchase desk parts at Ikea and make my own L shaped serger/sewing machine center in the corner of my room, but now I am wondering if those tabletops and legs will be able to withstand the vibration of the machines.
I am particularly looked at using just the standard leg for the table ends that will be in the corners: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/50105293
and these for the outer edges: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/10192824
(I am just doing 2 abutting rectangles - one longer than the other. They do sell a corner unit at Ikea but it just seems like a lot of unusable space and would make the desk more expensive overall.
Have you used Ikea desk components for sewing tables, and have you been happy? Otherwise, what would you recommend that would work for what I'm looking for (L shaped, white) that's around or under $300?
