Cool Way to Use an Old Sewing Table

Cool Idea: Reinventing the Sewing Wheel

I'm a sucker for most things antique, especially if they have a seamstress slant. While my settee may be my fave flea market find, my retired Singer table is right behind it. What has been keeping it in second place is the impracticality of it. I adore the original black sewing machine with golden accents, but unfortunately it doesn't make for an easy place to store much. Alas, I was introduced to a Singer revival that has me scavenging for a suitable table top.

The cute Sonoma shop The Loop displayed some jeans, a bowl, and other knickknacks on a table that was crafted from a Singer table base and an old table top. Simple enough to construct, all you need are the two pieces and, depending on the fit, potentially a few nails and maybe some wood glue. If I can find the right topper, my old iron-based clothes-maker may be taking the top spot and pushing my settee down the list.

What do you think of the table that reinvents the sewing wheel?

I have an old sewing machine as my laptop desk, but I kept the original since it had cute little drawers for desk supplies.

My mom had an old antique sewing table like this -- my dad had a piece of granite and attached it to plywood to affix to the table. Now it is an elegant buffet table in our formal dining room - it looks beautiful holding carafes of wine in the corner!
