Vintage Sewing Cabinet


 I adore

how this

 came out!

At a local estate auction right around the corner from my home, I picked up this sweet sewing cabinet for $5!
The top drawer pulls out as expected, but what was unexpected was the second drawer...It is on a swivel to expose an area for threads and needles.

The top had some damage which after fixing the veneer, made me decide to just paint the body of this piece and keep the drawers in their stained natural state.
I researched this cabinet online and found that it is from this 1930's and 40's, so I split the difference and put a 35 on the top for whimsy...
It's new home for now is right next to my settee in the mud room.
It's a keeper since I do a lot of sewing which makes it special in my heart.

  1. What a bargain, Terry - it turned out beautiful! It would be fun to go auctioning with you, but we'd probably both want the same things! :0)

  2. Oh I love it, what a fabulous piece. Hugs, marty

  3. This is very beautiful!
    I must admit that I am a bit jealous! ;)


  4. I love this, Terry! I really love the swivel drawer and what a steal at $5!! You did a beautiful job on it:)

  5. It turned out great! I like the paint and stain combo. Dropping by from Met Monday. Hope you'll come see my grandson's playroom.


  6. Beautiful transformation! I love how you left the drawers 'natural'! :)

  7. It's an awesome piece Terry! Love the 35 on it too. Thank you for sharing at What We Accomplished Wednesdays.


  8. You got a great deal and I love your transformation! Love the color combination and your lovely design on top! Those cabinets work especially well next to today's higher beds.

  9. Fabulous and so cute!!!!!!!!!!! Where did you get the number stencil from? LOVE it!


It makes me smile to hear from you!
