For her birthday, the creative reinventor did this:
This started off as a bar with a couple of stools.
The stools went off to Bolt Coffee, and this started its transformation.
It's the right height, and has a handy shelf, but it wasn't long or wide enough.
Or pink enough.
The two screwed together didn't fit through the door, so it had to be assembled in situ.
Which is what you get for the sewist who has almost everything.
It's since had a cutting grid glued to its top, which is a huge help for accurate fabric cutting.
As a sustainable present, it ticks a lot of boxes: something that will be used for years and years, very little of it was new, and it was extremely thoughtful.
