Her home, profiled in this month's Canadian House and Home, includes this elegant solution in the kitchen: a bottom shelf of a built in cabinet extends out to form a small table. While its dimensions may be too small for two adults, it's the perfect size for a child or, in this case, two; it can also be used as a workspace. We'd add hinges to make it even more useful.
