We love it when our clients think outside the box ... here's a great example

Here's a before photo of our clients vintage cabinet. They bought it used and want to used it for sewing.

We completely stripped off the old layers of paint and gave it a light sand.

Here's the after! We finished using Superior Paint Co. Little White, added new hardware and an extension on the side.

Ta da! Love their idea of adding the folding top; this will work great for anyone limited on space.

Hot tip...
Make sure if your adding a folding top to check the weight the hinges are rated for; these particular hinges weren't cheep but they can hold up to 200lbs!
