This mid-century sewing table was purchased for only $15 at a local thrift store. What a beauty! Thats a vintage glass cabinet door on top...I plan to hang that on the wall behind and above it...itll be a fab architectural element.
Just look at that wonderful patina! I coupled it with a chair purchased for $1 at a garage sale.
Just add a few nifty accessories and a cat and voila ! Youre done!

I came across this lonely little mid-century sewing table at one of my local thrift stores. It had been marked down from $80 to $45 to FIFTEEN DOLLARS!!! They were serious about making room for new merchandise, so I was more than happy to help them out.

Happy Junking.....Anne

How lucky to be able to buy your post door. Great look and find! That window is wonderful. I am working on silver foiling some glass to make it look an old mirrow. That would be a good size & shape.....good find.

All the best,
Anne
