I get so many questions about the large craft table that I built for my studio nearly 3 years ago. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t use that table.
The craft table is huge coming in at around 40 square feet of spacious crafty goodness. I built it for just around $400, which seems pretty pricey for a piece of furniture. That didn’t include the barstools I purchased with it.
However, it is the by far the largest piece of furniture in my home. And I don’t realize how large of a crafting area that is until people walk in and say Whoa that craft table is ginormous!
So what if you have zero building abilities and have had my large craft table pinned for three years and haven’t made it yet? I know, I know, it happens.
BUYING A CRAFT TABLE INSTEAD OF DIY-ing
Well, I decided to show you some options you can buy that might work for you. Keep in mind none of them are as large as mine are but many of them offer better organization. So that isn’t such a bad trade-off.
Plus most people don’t have 360 square feet of craft studio space like I do so these options might be better suited.

The first thing that I love about this is that it has two drawers. I would love drawers in mine! The middle front one is helpful for small craft supplies. You can even buy a drawer organizer to fit so it gives you different contained areas for things like stick pins, thread, and beads. I also love how they utilized the space with the side shelves and that awesome slotted area for scrapbook paper. This one measures 53 1/4″ wide by 30″ tall and 23 1/2″ deep. The current price is $329.99.
Now this table definitely is made more for the seamstress but it is on wheels. That is fabulous and definitely can help if you are short on space and need to move the sewing craft cart when it is not in use.
They definitely could have added more shelves on the inside but it is nice for things that are better stored up like markers, and paint. The current Amazon price is only $234. It measures 40.1″ x 28.5 x 19 1/4″ but it is 62 1/4″ when completely open. That gives a nice spot for a large cutting mat.
What I immediately noticed about this one is that it has hidden storage. I am a big fan of hiding my craft supplies. Hence the reason for my massive storage wall I built. However, it still has the horizontal shelves for scrapbook paper.
This definitely looks more like a craft desk so it might even be a good fit for a home office/craft room. The current Amazon price is $359.99 ON SALE with 20% off.
This craft table is perfect for small spaces since it folds up into a stylish cabinet making it perfect to fold away when not in use. It comes in three different finishes, white, grey and espresso which is really cool.
The price is right at $124.99 making it the cheapest on this list and a really strong candidate, especially if space is limited.
I also love that it has wheels so you can tuck away your supplies and close it into a compact side table that looks well in any room and take it wherever you need. The wood is build with metal hinges providing a wobble-free experience while lockable wheels and magnetic door locks keep supplies from falling out when moving it around. Dimensions are: 16″(L) x 23″(W) x31″(H)
This one is not marketed as a craft table but certainly can be one. With a price tag of $263.99 it does have 12 cubbies which is really nice for a ton of storage. It is really versatile as can be used for other matters as well, with your laptop or even for homework.
It can be a great choice depending as well on the layout of the room where you want to house it and what for. Can be ideal for sewing for example. Dimensions are 26.38″D x 47.44″W x 58.63″H .
I really love this craft table armoire. You can shut it up and looks like a TV armoire or you can pull it out halfway for a sewing area. It can even covert even further out and make a really nice work surface. It has ample storage but you can close it and hide it when not in use.
The shelf with full-extension slides and drop-leaf extension creates sewing and craft work space. And has six adjustable shelves for flexible storage options.
Price tag goes up a little at $459.99 but it is certainly worth it.
This one is definitely geared more toward the seamstress as well. It has a roll out thread storage as well as a roll out sewing machine storage but it looks very much like a desk. Plus the entire thing is on wheels which is always a plus in my book.
It also contains 3 others drawers to store more supplies. The current price is $315.99 on Amazon.
This definitely isn’t my favorite option but the sale price at $199.77 is right so that is why I am including it. It doesn’t have any drawers but it does have cubbies that you can use to store craft supplies and underneath the table you can store magazines or craft books.
The biggest pro for this piece is that it is so versatile and can be used in an office or kids’ room for a desk area down the road if you upgrade.
Maybe you pinned my craft table for the future because you are short on space, possibly an apartment dweller. However, every crafter needs a space to create, even if it is small.
This small table folds up so you can literally put it away on any wall. Again this is a great option to use for now and then put in a child’s room for a desk or add to a kitchen wall for a laptop workspace. Plus it comes in at only $121.98 (current amazon price).
This one is pretty much like #1 except it is countertop height giving more room for tall storage like wrapping paper. It also has some dowel rods to hang ribbon on as well as one middle drawer and cubby space.
It also includes 4 grey storage baskets (2 medium size and 2 large ones) which is really a nice added bonus. It measures 53.2 x 34 x 26.8 inches and the current Amazon price is $397.49
I think of these 10 tables one of them could probably fit your space and craft needs perfectly.
While they require some assembly, it is nothing like the time spent actually building one from scratch.
