new vision for sewing machine table

“Oh Sew Mio!”

My projects are taking longer and longer, but I think my life as I used to know it is on it’s way back to me. It’s been way too long since I’ve had time to write a blog. This will be short, but I’m still blogging and smiling.

This table has been in the works for a while; a vintage sewing machine cabinet. AND if you live close by and want a free sewing machine, just let me know – I haven’t tested it out though. I wasn’t sure what to convert it to. My initial though was that it would be a great bar cart with a hidden cooler. Then I started painting it green and realized, it was too cute to put a cooler in it. So, I went with the idea of a multipurpose piece for small space living that we all keep hearing about, aka Tiny Houses. Like this is a new thing; tiny space is the exact reason why I started selling online.

We removed the sewing machine, and when I say  “we” I really mean Jerry. Then where the machine lifted and was set in place, the piece of wood only covered half of the hole, we put a solid piece of wood, so this area could be used as a desk top.

Look below to see the bottom I put in the table for “light” storage. I say light because I haven’t tested it out to see just how much weight it can hold. A little awkward to get to the storage, but “tiny space” people are used to this.

I used upholstery webbing to basket weave the bottom for light storage.
