Recovering my Work Table

So, I decided that my work table was looking a bit...sad...seriously stained and scorched. 

This table has gotten a LOT of use since I first built it a couple of years back.  I originially came up with the idea because I was in desperate need of a larger work space that could also double as an ironing board.  

 So...it was time to get creative and I have to say my husband and I did a darn good job in the end!

I ended up with a table on wheels, lots of drawer space and some much needed space to work not to mention an ironing board all in one!  I think I'll turn this into a tutorial in case anyone would like to make one.

Here's a picture of what it looked like BEFORE the new covering...

I don't think you're getting the real picture of how bad this looked.  Let me give you a better close up.

YUCK!!!!!!

Okay, so I do like working on a nice plain white surface but couldn't help but get creative and decided to use a lightly printed fabric this time.  Here's the final product...

At first, I have to admit the print was a bit of distraction when working with other fabrics.  However, it's interesting to note that I have completely adjusted to having it there and don't even notice it anymore!

I think I'll turn this into a tutorial.  Should be fun. 

:)  Happy Tuesday!
