Antique Sewing Table-Part II

April 6, 2014

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 keys and a 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 eyeglasses.









The knob that once lifted the sewing machine up and down now holds a basket of Hydrangeas.
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 too big for your tabletop 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?

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. :-)

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,

Clever idea for the lamp! And I like that it has the little spots for your cell phone and keys. Great re-purpose :) Stopping by from Wow Us Wednesdays.

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
