Adding measuring tape to your craft table......

Hello everyone!  Today I wanted to show you a quick way to update a table so you are not always searching for a yard stick or ruler.  When I am in my craft room I am always needing to measure items such as fabric, wood, paper, etc. and inevitably I can never find a ruler.  Well today my friends I have fixed that problem.  Take a "Lookie" at how I updated my craft island by simply installing a roll of measuring tape.

Supplies Needed

Roll of measuring tape
Adhesive Tape

I first started by measuring and cutting the exact length of measuring tape that would fit on the side of the island.  Take the adhesive roll of tape and run it down the entire length of your measuring tape.

After you have completely taped the entire length of measuring tape, peel off the other side of adhesive tape....

Now apply the measuring tape to your table....

How quick and easy was that!!!!!

I know I am going to use this everyday!

Hope you have a great day!!!
