sewing table

i love these old trundle sewing tables. beautiful furniture to house a great machine.


someday i'd like to create a new use for the human motor. perhaps a leg powered desk lamp....


but this time i took the machine out, added a shelf and painted it turquoise. i think it would be a perfect sideboard/ bar.

I love these old cabinets, and like to think about the woman who used it and probably loved it as well.

Your idea for a side bar is perfect for that old cabinet, I would never have thought of that! Cheers!

So pretty! I love the delicate carving.. it almost looks like a wall crack. Lovely!
