I have been wanting a dedicated craft space since (before) we moved into our house about 2 years ago. It’s been really difficult to bring myself to spend money on an organized space just for myself – but with the growth of the Atkinson Drive Etsy shops and the new family addition, I knew something had to be done about the “craft explosion” going on around here. My husband and I decided to transform the loft upstairs into a space where I can not only get all of my crafting done, but complete my design work as well. The space is nowhere near being finished, but it’s definitely getting there, and I’m super excited to share how we made my 12′ work space for less than $100!

Oh my goodness – this is so perfect! I have been looking for a desk solution for my craft/work space. So smart to use the countertop! Would you come by and share it with us at The Makers link party if you have a second?

this looks like an amazing work space! I wish I had that much room for just crafting!

What a great idea to use countertops as a desk! Definitely pinning this brilliant tip! I love how it turned out and it looks like this will be a great place to let your creativity flow!
Thanks! I love that my little guys can craft in there with me!

That is a bright and cheery space for sure! Love that cute little desk, too! (:
Thanks so much – it’s definitely one of my favorite places to be!

My friend Anne already had done this idea and when she moved she didn’t have the space so I purchased the countertop. I just have to wait until I have the space LOL. Instead of legs she used small bookcases instead of legs and had storage as well.
What a great idea!
Don’t know where you bought your countertop but just went to the Lowe’s site and one 6″ piece is listed for $86.00. That is not cheap!!!
We got ours at Lowe’s for approximately $30 per piece. Pricing varies a lot by what’s available in your location and what product you’re looking at. We saw several that were over $100 … that just wasn’t within our budget!

Do you have any restore places around, you might be able to get a countertop there? Also if you have a freecycle group in your area, someone might be renovating their kitchen and you could get their old countertop. They are quite often in good shape still.

I am subscribing. I love diy projects. I am not very handy, so the easier and cheaper the better. I love this idea. Looking forward to all the new ideas.
Thank you! :-)
