Have you ever taken 5 minutes to do something and think to yourself, “Why didn’t I do this AGES ago???”
This past weekend I walked across the street and spent a whopping $11 and made a major improvement to my sewing room. I bought four all-purpose plastic tubs, propped up my sewing table with them, and saved myself a ton of back pain.
I was truly amazed what this extra 8 inches or so of height did for my back. I feel like a complete idiot – I should have done this ages ago.
As you can see above, my sewing table is now level with my ironing board, which is a good sign that the table is now at an adequate height for working while standing.
You can also see how my desk is blocked when the “studio” is set up. BTW, this is actually the desk I am writing this post in right now. 🙂
I don’t know how long these plastic tubs will last, but for $11, I don’t really care. I’m just happy that I have temporarily overcome my idiocy and managed to fix this extremely fixable problem. Hooray!
