Half Table DIY Space-Saver Project

When Boyfriend and I first moved into our house I went on a crazy quest for the perfect 4-person round table for our smallish dining room. We were super excited…. and then ate at it exactly 3 times. In 3 years. And those were within the first 6 months.

Then suddenly our dining room became a super cool little waste of space- unless you count the table that turned out to be good for one thing and one thing only: being something I had to dust every week. Said table has now found a new home in our backroom addition where it will get plenty of use when we entertain. Don’t distress over the poor table! It’s very happy in its new home.

Here’s what I did with our newly freed up dining room space by cutting a high top table in half:


This is my laptop space. It’s perfect because it’s right off the kitchen so I can type up a quick article while Boyfriend cooks dinner:


I added a little curtain on this side to create more storage space:


 Now Boyfriend has an easy-access space to store his podcast equipment for his show, Jack Of All Nerds. BTW you should totes check them out on Facebook here.

    1. Thanks! (and thanks to you & Mrs. Roblotter for the table btw <3) I used two pieces of scrap wood (each 2" x 2" x 2.25') to make a simple cleat. Used drywall anchors to screw the wood into the wall at a height that was flush with the underside of the table and then screwed the table into the wood. I learned it from The Googles. 🙂
