After seeing so many awesomely altered cabinets and hutches over the years, I’m convinced that anyone, regardless of his or her craft skills or experience, can transform a piece of furniture to suit their tastes— with a little creativity, of course.

Warsaw is now home to the completed Keret House project, and it has to be one of the most narrow homes in the world.
