Here are a couple of pics of the inspiration table from Pottery Barn:
The dimensions of the PB table is 55" wide x 38" deep x 37" high - my table is the same depth and height - but I wanted it to be longer - so mine is 72 inches wide.
So, after some time thinking about this - I decided the best thing to do would be to buy closet organizers that are similar to the ends of the PB table. So - I bought two of these closetmaid white 9 cube organizers from lowes:
These were $54.88 each plus tax - so approximately $120.
The next thing I bought at Lowes was a 5/8 inch thick piece of plywood - and 3 8 ft pieces of molding. You could use whatever base or chair molding that you like.
Luckily for me - my father-in-law has a workshop, and he put the pieces together for the top and sanded them down - and helped (mostly did) the paint job - thanks Mark!!!!
Between the molding, the plywood and the gallon of black paint I spent about another $70.
Total project $190 - saving me $1000 over the Pottery Barn version!!!
Here is my version of the table in our craft room:
Here are a couple of closer looks to see the detail of the molding:
Kiana and I each have one of these seats on order so we can work at our table:
The finishing touches on this room are still to come - so stay tuned for the final output - but that could take a month or so.
Tonight at target they had the sames shelves that I used from Lowes in multiple colors: pink, lt green, dark brown and some others I don't remember - and they were only $49.99.
