How To: Transform an Armoire into a Sewing Cabinet

Lindy had an antique armoire just itching to become a sewing cabinet. With the help of some birch plywood, piano hinges and drop-leaf table hardward that she found on the interweb, she was able to transform the armoire in to a very clever sewing cabinet. When closed, the armoire looks perfectly at home in her guest room. When opened, she’s ready to get to work.

No antique armoire on hand? No problem; I’m thinking one of those gigantic tube TV cabinet/armoires (that are a dime a dozen on Craigslist) could work just fine. To see a boat-load of pictures of the Lindy’s hide-a-way sewing cabinet, visit this page.
