My Creative Space

This week has seen our very own "Raglan Guld - Make Over!". The multi talented Dave has recycled some packing crates to build possibly the best cutting table on the planet for me to slice away on! Oh...see that extra shelf...perfect for fabric storage!!



In 2 short nights he had it finished!! Arrrrrrrrr I am dreaming.



And then......to top it off, he tracked down some super sturdy shelfs (to replace these) from a wholesale food depot (I'm not fussy), I'll tell-ya- what..........he is one good man! x



For more creative spaces fun, grab a cup-pa and pop over to Kootoyoo.

What an awesome space Leonie, made even more 'awesomer' by Dave. You should keep him!

Leonie Guld said...

Oooh He's a keeper for sure, I'll have him in his stubby shorts and flannel shirt!!! There's nothing better than a mighty fine tradie!! (if you are wondering he is a bricklayer by trade. see very multi talented!)

What a good bloke you have there and very handy. Your space is amazing and looks very roomy. Are they industrial machines I see? Oh how I envy you.

Your space is wonderful...one day.. *sighs and gazes off wisfully into the distance*

Leonie Guld said...

Hi mel, Yes they are industrial Machines but don't be fooled into thinking that they are super expensive. Both of mine were second hand and cost $400 each. You'll never see me go back to anything else! I LOVE them!!

Fantastic - I think I might have to send this link to my own DH (who's been nagged about making me a cutting table for a while). I love the repurposing aspect of the project too!
Well done Dave :)
