Our yardage printing table!

This morning I received a phone call from the company who are supplying the materials for our yardage printing table. They told me that the delivery truck had left a little while ago and that I must (and I quote) "Run! Run!" down to the studio to get there before they did.

So I quickly gathered together my things (thankfully had the foresight to pack my laptop) and hurried down there.

And then waited. And waited. Missed morning tea, missed lunch. Pottered on the laptop sans internet (such agony) and did some more painting of the windows. And then, finally the delivery guys arrived.

These poor blokes had to haul sheet after sheet of incredibly heavy particle board up 2 flights of stairs which I did not envy.

But once Tegan and Bianca arrived later that day, it didn't take us long to put it together:


All the pieces laid out, and construction begins!


The frame coming together


The bottom shelf in place (yay storage)


Et voila! (like our new window colour?)

Well kinda - next we need to prepare the surface and get this baby perfectly level. Eeee!

These are fantastic! (And worth that long agonizing wait, I hope). So dreamy - all that room for yards and yards of fabric!

Aw wow, think of all the fabric that will come from that table. Yep, I'm drooling just thinking about it!

Window colour is perfect, so much better than the blue! :o)

It looks great! I felt pretty sorry for those guys - one had even banged his head on something going up the stairs
well done!

This yardage table is brilliant....can you share the name of your supplier????
And so glad you've changed your mind about purple....

Thanks so much for all the lovely comments everyone!

Michelle - we're usually all for sharing knowledge (it's something we love so much about the blogging community) but... given we're still in the process of starting up we feel it's a little too soon to let go of that little pearl of knowledge ;) sourcing a table has been one of our biggest hurdles!

How about now? I am doing pricing for my own studio space, and was wondering if you could point me in the direction of a good supplier/kit for building a print table...

all the best!
