WOYWW August 20-Rising up!

It's actually W underneath my WW.
I've only bought two pieces of furniture in my life, this wonderful drawing table being one of them.
I stand when I work  play so until yesterday I had it propped up on bricks, somewhat unsatisfactorily .
Yesterday I got 6" risers made for this table, and they installed effortlessly, once I cleaned off the entire top of my desk.
The little black pads on the bottom can be screwed in and out easily to level the top and raise it up a it more if desired.
The circles point to the extensions-6" and the arrow points to the join.
I got the You doodle app on my iPad, just to share with y'all.
How fun is that!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I'm off to visit many of you.

If you are a praying desker- please hold my dear friend Dick(80+) in the Light. He has had a stoke, and is on the long road to (we pray) recovery.

Comment and Questions always welcomed!


  1. You must be very happy with your space now that you desk is more stable to play at hugs Nikki no # yet

  2. That is so clever that you can just add extensions. Now there is more space for stuff underneath too! #23

  3. Great work - those taller legs will work really well. I'm afraid I must be getting old - I always sit to work!! Trust Dick gets better each day. I've been a bit out of touch with civilised society these past couple of weeks - hope you have had loads of great feedback from the daughter's trip to Israel...
    Take care. God bless.

  4. that sounds so useful to have an extendable desk... Lots of great storage underneath too. Hope Dick continues to recover. Helen 17

  5. I sincerely hope your friend recovers quickly from his stroke, it is a hard way to recovery.
    Your stand looks great, and look at all these lovely toys underneath, I hope you will find your inner peace soon to do something nice with it.
    I could not do anything this week either..

  6. How high does it extend? You could end up like the Princess and the Pea fairy story, teetering on high with your stash below :-)
    Am sorry to hear about your friend...positive vibes coming his way right now...
    Hugs, LLJ 10 xx

  7. Sorry to hear about your friend, hope he continues on his way to better health.
    Love the table and if it goes higher you can keep putting more stuff underneath until it reaches the ceiling LOL!
    Have a great week and happy crafting, Angela x 49

  8. That's a great table, and if you hadn't pointed it out, I don't think I'd have spotted the join! My old work table is now in my hubby's study, and is still propped up on bricks! It's an old fashioned wooden farmhouse kitchen table that I couldn't bear to part with, but my new ARTHaven has no room for it, to I gave it to my hubby.

    Praying for Dick. A stroke is a very worrying thing. Mum had one recently but it was thankfully only a mini-one. She is 93. Recovery takes a long time and can be very hard work!

    Happy WOYWW,

  9. Praying for your friend and his healing. Your workspace is uber organized - love it! I think I stand quite a bit when I'm crafting--up and down really. Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #51

  10. Isn't it satisfying when something you have been meanign to get sorted for ages, actually happens. Now your work space really works for you, so good stuff will be happening soon.
    Praying that your friend is well on the way to recovery.

  11. Hi Robyn,love how you've 'fixed' your desk! Will be thinking about your friend, and hoping all goes well. I can see you are having lots of fun with your new app toy, lol. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #16 xxx

  12. Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog, Robyn - yes, I agree - making a card can bring comfort as well as receiving one. So much of oneself goes into each project, and when it is finished this card will be so full of love!

  13. Said a prayer for your friend. Glad to do it. My desk is on 4" x 4" pieces of wood for the extra height as I often stand, too! Happy WOYWW!

  14. The extension is hardly visible! Or rather, not at all if you hadn't pointed it out. I am not used to stand while crafting/working, but I think I should alter between sitting and standing more as I think it's better to not sit so much.
    Postive thoughts for your friend Dick, and for you.

  15. Hi Robyn - hope you enjoy your new taller desk !! Hope your friend battles back to health soon Thanks for visiting Ali #8

  16. What a great work table. I had risers made for my kitchen table so I could work on soap there. I only stand when working on soap. Prayers out to your friend!
    Happy WOYWW,
    Thanks for sharing your space!

  17. Clever idea for your desk. I have a tall one too. I find leaning over the standard height ones gives me backache!
    Everything's looking very organised!
    Have a fun week

  18. I prefer to stand, or at least sit on a rather tall bar stool to work-play, but now that I have moved Betsy out of the closet I'm back in a regular height chair.....................just doesn't feel right.

    We have made extenders for our plastic folding table that we use for BBQ competitions, out of PVC pipe. It really makes a difference when standing at it all day selling samples. Not as nice and pretty as yours, but useful.

    Have a great week

  19. Hi Robyn, happy WOYWW and that is a wonderful idea to lift the workspace you can't even see the joins. Have a wonderful week Cheers RobynO#21

  20. great idea to put risers on your table. I may have to look into that for the desk I stand to stamp at! Have a great week. Vickie #64

  21. the extension legs will certainly be better for your back when you are standing at your desk.... so you can stay working longer ha ha!

  22. Oh dear selling buttons I have a pretty big collection now and love them I'm sure I'll find a use for most of them one day my faves are some super old ones that I'm having a hard time to figure out the best way to use them but I'm sure I eventually will :)
