Anyone following me on Instagram or Facebook knows that I have a new cutting table. It arrived yesterday and I'm so tickled pink with it.
I've been using a chest of drawers as a cutting bench for the last 6 years and it's worked very well but the time has come for something bigger.
A while ago I saw a great kitchen island in Ikea that I thought would work for a cutting table but when I measured the spaces in my sewing room it was too long and would have meant too much re-organisation of the room. Then I had a brainwave of having a kitchen company build one for me but that turned out to be very expensive (over twice the cost of the Ikea bench) so I started looking on Ebay and Gum Tree. I found a cabinet-maker on Gum Tree who could build exactly what I was after and arrange delivery from Victoria.
I moved some of the girls' childhood furniture into the room as well for some more storage and it's all set, except for some tidying/cleaning out of the wardrobe and shelves. Think I might need a white machine cabinet next.
