Antique Sewing Table-Part II




Ok friends here it is..
My reinvention of this antique sewing table that I shared with you in this post
I decided to use it as an entry table

Here it is before
I know what you're thinking.....The before looks the same as the after.

And that's because.......

  I didn't paint it.. The only thing I did was style it.  It probably will get a coat of paint down the road, but for now I like how it looks with all its dents and scratches.



I really had fun styling this little table!!




This is a great entry table because the three small compartments that once held needles and thread now makes a great place to put my keys and cell phone.



On top of the table I placed a Campanula inside a birch basket and showed off some blue and white by placing a platter on display and using a small dish to hold a pair of eye glasses.








The knob that once lifted the sewing machine up and down now holds a basket of Hydrangea's.
It would be a neat place to hang an umbrella too.




Instead of placing the lamp on the table I placed it on top of a stool.  Good idea if your lamp is to big for your table top and also if you don't want to block the reflection in your mirror.





I really love my magazines.  I hoard them as if they were made of gold.


I will be playing around with this table again; using it as a planter.

 I love taking a piece of furniture and using it in different ways then what it was intended for.
How about you?

  1. It looks like you found a great place for it. That tip out drawer looks really handy for keys and stuff. And, to think that you're having so much fun with something you found for free. I love stuff like that! It's so rewarding. I'll look forward to the other things you try out with it. :-)

  2. I love what you have done with your blue and white touches. The magazines look really good in the basket too. Everything looks wonderful, including the table!

    If you have a minute to spare I'd be thrilled if you could share your post at my weekly Say G'Day linky party. This post would be a great addition!

    Best wishes,

  9. Love how old sewing machine tables are being refurbished as whatever people can think of. Quite upset with myself for getting rid of one a year ago, kick me somebody please. Your entry is quite inviting, love all your accoutrements. Happy Easter
