    How nice. I love it.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    This is a wonderful idea. Extra storage is always wonderful. Thank you for sharing.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    What a great idea! The storage comes in handy I bet. What did the top measure out to be if you don't mind my asking.

    my 'too low' cutting table grew with 4 large cans of tomato sauce...and i will be adjusting an old cabinet and getting an ironing top for it before our Thursday sewing group! what a good idea! and one less thing (the ironing board, which i use mostly for folding tables, anyway) in the middle of the room.

    Really nice. That is a great idea. It is always nice to have the extra storage space. It seems there's never enough.

    My "Big Board" is 24" from front to back and 60" long.

    The china cabinet bottom is 18" from front to back and 50" wide. It is 33" high.

    Cool idea. I may steal it. We are fulltime RVer's and this idea could work wonderfully. Thanks for sharing!

    That is a great idea. I have a TV credenza with no Tv in it but a record player and radio (which my husband still doesnt want to part with) trying to figure out how to use that and put it in the dining room where I sew. Need to think about this. - J
