Sewing / Cutting table inspiration

Have you ever seen something and you have an Ah-Ha! Moment? Well, I did. I was reading Victoria’s blog   and she posted on something she saw that struck her as brilliant. She took us over to Brooke Wilkerson's blog. She took 12 IKEA LACK tables and stacked them to make this wonderful cutting / sewing table. I checked the IKEA website and the white ones are $9.99 each (even here in Canada). 

Here is what she created. Sheer genius, n'est pas?

I love the height of the tables, the depth of the table, the storage area beneath and the fact that it is held together by Velcro and can be dismounted easily. My current table is a fold up table from Canadiantire. It is too low, too narrow for my sewing table. This IKEA hack will allow me to have my sewing space while still being practical and affordable. My sewing space doubles as a play room and entertaining area. When we have people over I remove my tables. When we have large dinner parties we set up long tables in my sewing area. This idea will still allow us to do that!

Thank you both for sharing this WONDERFUL idea! Now, to save up $$$ for this. 


  1. I'm so glad you like my idea! I hope it helps make your sewing projects easier! And if you make your own version, please let me know because I'd love to see it. =)
