Sewing Cabinet Upcycled into a Bar Cart

$6
1 Day
Medium

Sewing cabinets are something that I've seen a lot of in the past and have passed up because I wasn't seeing beyond their intended use. Now that I've upcycled this cabinet into a fun and useful drinks serving station, I would definitely seek out these cabinets in the future.
After the machine was gone, the inside of the cabinet was completely hollow. So I installed a sturdy board that I screwed to the underside of the cabinet. This makes the cabinet functional for storage.

    Great to see antique furniture like this sewing cabinet being recycled and repurposed. Extra bonus to see new life as a home bar, but then we're a little biased.
