Good morning! Guess what? We just finished another fun space-saving mini-project. Well, Caveman did it all. I just clapped and smiled and encouraged because that’s really all I’m good at. However, I am proud to announce that THIS idea was my own. My genius! Caveman’s design! We recently modified our kitchen table into “two tables in one” to gain some hidden storage space.

The other day I was thinking how nice it would be if we had an extra table surface. What I really wanted was a hideable space where we could store electronics, or leave up a half-played board game, or even keep linens or the kids’ preschool supplies. I stared at our table and realized that if Caveman slapped a board on the bottom there then sawed off the table surface right there, we could gain 3-4″ of space.
I waited not-so-patiently until he got home, and then excitedly poured out my idea. He was impressed at my innovation and set to work. (You know I love having such a handy hubby who can just create things like this just like that.)
He still had some plywood left over from the boys’ bunk beds, so we didn’t have to purchase the base. (Bonus!) A couple hours at a friend’s shop, a couple hinges and a coat of paint later and Voila!
Here’s our old-but-improved dining table, complete with a storage surface underneath the table top.
Really, this project could be replicated with any cheap solid wood table designed similarly to ours. So if you’re looking for a leetle bit more storage space, I hope you’re inspired. The possibilities are endless!
Fun, huh? What do you think? If you like, don’t be afraid to pin!
Have a great week folks. Happy living small!
