Vintage Thingies Thursday: Sewing Table

Here is the headquarters for my creativity when I'm not at my sewing machine. I'm showing it in it's usual messy glory. I've got a wastebasket full of threads, works in progress on the table, pattern printouts from the internet, different threads and pincushions and a coaster for my mug of tea.

This is where I plant myself when I get a spare moment. It's a jumble, but functional.



The real beauty of this table, though, is what's inside. It's an English sewing table, and if I clear the stuff off the top you can see the beautiful silk-lined interior. Very functional, although I think in the old days they probably didn't keep as much junk on top of it.

Oh my goodness; I am in LOVE. Is that an heirloom; oh I absolutely adore things that you can hide stuff in!

My mothers side table was just like yours. She had her own special chair also :^). I float around too much to claim one special chair!

I can't get over this piece. I WANT this piece! lol

This is so cool! I love that it opens up. Did you find the table in an antique store or was it passed down from a family member?

What a wonderful sewing table. My mom had a sewing chair that worked the same way, I used to love that. Great item to show.

Gorgeous, gorgeous. (As is the quilt on your header!)

Furnishings with secret compartments thrill me so...oh the illicit little goodies that could be hidden away.
