I adore her book, Organizing.

For the worktop, I used two $24 Hollow Core Doors from Home Depot and covered them in Green Oilcloth Tablecloths. This gives me a surface that's very easy to keep clean.
I then set them on top of 5 strategically placed $18.00 Bookcases from Walmart.
I added two more Bookcases on top to make "hutch-style" storage for my paints, glues, etc.
I also had this old wine bottle dryer that I set up there to keep my ribbons, strings & scissors within easy reach.
I organized my fat-quarters and scrap fabrics by color.
And... here is my Bloggy Space set up on the Potting Bench Desk I face-lifted a while back!
The final result:
If only I could keep it this organized all the time! Oh well, that's the creative process for ya!

Compare to Real Martha Stewart Craft Furniture (2 Craft Tables $478.00, 2 Hutch Tops $358.00). Plus, I have WAY more storage underneath my Craft Table!
