I have an old Singer cabinet style sewing machine and I would like some ideas of how to utilize it other than using it as an end table with a cloth covering it. I would appreciate any clever ideas you may have. Thanks!
I put mine in front of my big diningroom window which faces north-west. I put my flowering plants (violets) on it and it looks great. I made some quilted place mats (small) to put under each pot incase of stray water. I hope this helps you.
You can make a make-up vanity out of it. Here's how:
Remove the sewing machine from the cabinet.
The lid usually opens to the side. Relocate the hinges so the lid opens from the front and stands up. Mount a square mirror tile with glue.
Line any drawers with a complimentary color of velvet or silk. Fill drawers with perfume and makeup bottles.
If it has little drawers, you could use it as a bill paying station and store your stamps etc or maybe a scrapbooking area.
Thanks for the great ideas. I can't wait to get started!!
