Some interesting dynamics can happen when 2 very different people marry.
Well it can be very dynamic when 2 different pieces of furniture do the same!
What happens when an ugly vintage sewing machine cabinet
marries a manly, greasy, oily piece of furniture called a card desk?
(Card desks were used before computers for keeping inventory. See all those cubbies? They held 4 x 6 cards that had each piece of inventory that was in a store. I know caz I sat at that desk for years when we had our auto/farm parts store)
Oops sorry for the bunny trail- but my, wasn't that such interesting information!
Back to what happens when these 2 pieces meet-
Yup it was love at first site!
Some elbow grease to get all that gunk off the card desk, then measuring, cutting, painting, cutting some more and look what happened-
A perfect craft/sewing table with lots of cubbies for laces and things.
We cut the top of the sewing machine cabinet to fit the card desk so I could use this for my sewing table too. Dual purpose is always a good thing!
I lined the cubbies with old pages
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my new Table!!!
And yes, that is an old machine which sews just beautifully! It's just like the one I learned on when I was little and when I found it at a yard sale knew it had to become mine!
So what do you think?
Do you think this marriage is a good one and will it last?
I am so excited about a creative space that I can work in!
I am not finished yet but as I mentioned in my last post I am truly having so much joy in this journey!
Thank you to all who have been so encouraging to me with this project!
I would never have even ventured to make a space just for me if it wasn't for you
and all those who have inspired me so much .
I will give you more details on how this was done later
(I sure wish someone would come and take pictures for me!
I cannot seem to get the depth of beauty
captured in mine.)
