I spent the afternoon finishing up the Ikea rail system and added a cabinet under the cutting table! I just love how small changes make such big differences. Getting my tools up on the wall gave me an extra 10-12 inches of workable table space. This is great when cutting Oilcloth Addict yardage and Modern June Tablecloths, every inch counts. The cabinet is a sanity saver, the cutting table is one of those fold up cheap-O's from Joann's and that thing used to wiggle and jiggle until I was in fits! After propping the table up on some tin loaf pans it is good and sturdy. The extra storage, isn't bad either!
I didn't have the cash flow to get all the special shelves and cups that goes with the Grundtal System so I had to improvise. I found the super cheap measuring cups for $1.99 instead of their cups for $5.99. Not a bad trade off, my version is fun and functional.
I must admit, this didn't work out so well. This morning in a act of desperation I snipped some of the mesh out of this Target bin so I could get the S hooks to through. I hate the way it hangs, but it will be fine until my next pilgrimage to Ikea, when I buy a proper shelf for my pens and pins.
