Helpful Hints Thursday: Table

I honestly don’t know how I ever managed projects without today’s helpful hint item.

Yes, it’s a table. It measures 4ft by 2ft and has three heights. The lowest height is perfect for working with my kids. The middle height is great for an average height table, and the tallest height is like a counter or standing work table. (If you click on the picture below it will take you through to Sam’s website. Click on “see more images” and you can see the heights in action.)


But, what I like the most is the way it folds! See the bottom inset picture? That’s what it does – it folds into a nice, flat little 2ft square, about four inches thick. It can slide almost anywhere out of the way! And, it is very lightweight, so it’s easy to move it from room to room.

I balked at spending the money on this when Doug picked it up for me last fall. I knew it would be handy, but I just didn’t want to put a strain on the budget elsewhere. But, I have to say that it didn’t take long at all for all hesitancy to fly away. We’ve used this as extra counter space in the kitchen when doing massive cooking days. I used it daily while working on Christmas projects. It’s perfect as a pattern cutting table – I don’t have to bend over to cut! But, it doesn’t have to take up permanent space. I can use it and then put it away. (It hasn’t been put away in over a month because of continual projects, but that’s beside the point!!)

An extra flat work surface that does not have to be permanent and therefore does not have to take up space or collect junk. Yep, that sounds like a winner to me!

Just for the record, we did purchase this table, and I receive no kickback of any sort for referring you to the Sam’s site. We just bought it at Sam’s, so I knew they’d have pictures!


I am a homeschooling preacher's wife and managing editor for the Well Planned Gal. But, I also love to write just for the fun of it. I also process best through writing, and my thoughts tend to flow from things I learn through the Bible, interacting with my family, and moving through life in general. Thanks for joining me in my not quite ordinary journey.

What are your thoughts? I'd love to hear from you!
