How to Make a Cubbie Table


Last night I was hanging out in the basement...
just my power tools and me.

I had this old compartmented box and an idea.

I started putting random pieces together, I added the cubbies to the top of a flat wooden box...

As you can see I am not trim work expert!

I attached the 2 pieces to the bottom of an old sewing chest that I had taken apart a while back, these legs were already there.

I painted the whole piece white with Annie Sloan chalk paint, waxed it with furniture wax with jus a dash of 
brown paint in it to give it depth.

Then I added an advertisement from The Graphics Fairy

The graphic was added by printing an image in reverse, trim it so there isn't much paper around your image. Coat the printed side with Modge Podge, add it to your surface and let it dry completely. 

When it is dry, soak the paper again and start rubbing all the paper off. 

The image will stay on the surface! It's magic! 

Give it a coat of wax or Polycrylic and you are good to go!

My table is out on the deck for now...

What would you put in all these little cubbies?
