Examine the database using whatever utility you use for doing that ( I think it is psql for postgres, I guess there are also graphical utilities) and I suspect you will find you have. Perhaps you have accidentally added two migrations for adding the table, or perhaps you have managed to run the migration twice. If you have nothing of interest in the db than you can throw it away and start again using

rake db:drop # delete the db rake db:create # create an empty one rake db:migrate # run the migrations
