A "New" Sewing and Craft Desk

I turned an old secretary desk into a sewing and craft table.
My mother-in-law was going to toss out this old secretary desk so I rescued it, but it sat in my living room for years doing nothing but holding a few family photos.
The front has 2 doors that even lock.
The lid (top) comes down to create a table-top
Painted the interior and sealed it with polyurethane because of the wear and tear it will experience as a sewing table.
I added peg boards to hold threads and I can store my small potable serger and zig zag machines on the bottom when not in use. There are plenty of spaces to store those little items that get lost easily like bobbins, zipper feet and trims....
I have a navy blue leather sofa set in the room so on the front doors I used mod-podge to attach a pretty fabric with a grosgrain ribbon to cover the raw edge. The fabric colors match the sofa and wall colors. I am going to make throw pillows for the room.
