I've had sewing machine tables for years. Currently I have two and one is on the patio. There are limitless ways to use these for storage.
Think beverage bar, desk, end table, etc.
These pieces are rich with history and nostalgia. Someone's grandma sat at one of these and sewed while keeping that treadle moving up and down at the bottom like I watched my great-grandma do.
Add to that a ladder, an old shelf and a vintage clock face and you're rich with vintage style!
