I recently purchased a Lifetime 4-Foot Fold-In-Half Table for my own personal use. I live in a fairly small apartment, so space can be limited at times. This 4-Foot Table is perfect because it has an awesome fold-in-half design that allows me to store it in my small closet. It is also very easy to set up and use when I want to. Another cool feature is the adjustable height design which allows you to raise and lower the table to whatever height is best for your project. And even thought it is a super lightweight design, I also love the handle to help carry it around my place. Well, I found out that my sister-in-law is pregnant and is having a baby boy! I am very excited and decided that I want to make her a baby quilt. So far my project is working out very well – with much thanks to my Lifetime table! I don’t have... More
