This is my new crafting counter...currently covered in projects (you can see it clean here). It's an idea I have loved for months and was inspired by this standing desk. We made it higher (40") than a standard counter (36") and it makes a huge difference. I also got a piece of glass custom cut for it, so it's easy to clean off.
The "window" it's at looks down on the living room on the first floor. Sean has warned me to resist the urge to place things on the windowsill. In this photo you can see that I am not exactly heeding his advice...that was yesterday's paper plate painting surface. Hopefully I'll be careful enough to keep things from falling a good dozen feet or so...hopefully.
You can see my ancient paper trimmer on there too...I actually have been shopping around for a new one. I have had this Fiskars one for well over ten years and tens of thousands of cuts, so it has seen better days. If you have any paper trimmer suggestions I would love to hear what's been working for you. Thanks.
