It is quite short! But I love the blue floral fabric that you used Smiley It reminds be of a pattern on china, and I think the skirt will be even cuter with lace on the bottom.

Also, you sewed that while sick with something resembling pneumonia?!?!!! Awesome dedication to crafting Wink
14  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Woah guys, it's a table!!! (Pic heavy) on: September 13, 2011 02:05:32 PM
This is the first big project that I've ever undertaken, and it went so amazingly well!!!!!! I got it finished in about two weekends. All the wood is pine. For the top I used two pine panels, which I doweled and wood glued together and then cut to size (68 inches long, and 36 inches wide). The legs I wanted to be a custom height (31 inches), so rather than buying table legs, I bought 4 pieces of 1x3 pine and then I wood glued and screwed 2 pieces together. Each new 2x3 piece was cut down to two table legs and then routered to look fancy.

My dad helped me with the design of the table, and he talked me through what I had to do for each step. The entire time was like a really intensive how to use power tools class as well because I've really never used anything more complicated than a hammer. Even so, I'm so proud to say that I did everything pretty much on my own. He did the routering on the table top, and he did the rings near the bottoms of the legs (table routers are tricky to use for fancy things) but other than that this table is all me Cheesy

(This picture made me realise how dusty my floor is over there...)

With lumber, screws, l-brackets and everything like that taken in to consideration the whole table cost me about $130. It wasn't exactly a money saving operation, but that wasn't the goal.

(^ This picture is really washed out, the table top is darker than it looks)

My table is currently residing at one end of my bedroom, where I'm slowly starting to set up my very first personal crafting area. Before this I would always go home to craft with my mum/my mum's supplies Tongue

Comments/questions/critiques would be greatly appreciated!!

WOW smmarrt!!! I love all the techniques that you've spread out around your journal! I use post it notes as a resist to leave space to write in my journal, but it never occured to me to extend that trick to leaves or other shapes.

Awesome stuff!!! I'm hoping that when I get home Sunday night I will have a journal waiting for me that I can show everyone!!!
