When I saw the craft table in Junk Market, I knew I had to use an old worktable that was my dads for my scrap table. I cleaned it off, sanded the top a little and coated with lemon oil. I love having it in my scrap area of the living room!

We sold a metal desk just over a year ago that is identical to yours. I think I regretted it the moment they loaded it on the buyer's truck. Boohoo.

Welcome to JUNKMARKET Style!

Welcome to the site and thanks for sharing. You've got a great area in your living space to work at, my studio is down in our basement and not near as fun.

The old worktable is fantastic. It's so wonderful when you can re-use something in your home that has special meaning/memories for you. It looks great in your living room/creative space.
