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.
A peek inside:
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.
Opened and ready for work:
