Last Labor Day weekend I happened upon a yard sale up the street from my parents house. That is where I found this piece for $10. Since then it has sat in the garage along with some other furniture pieces that need some help.
I decided that I would paint it since the legs were in pretty bad shape and the wood veneers were all scratched up. I sanded and painted it and then painted again. First I painted it 'society hill blue' but, wasn't sure if I liked it so I changed it to 'swiss coffee' and now love it.
Inside a surprise.
A Singer sewing machine. I have yet to see if it works but, it needs a bobbin plate to start.
I researched the serial number and found out the model was manufactured in 1947. Even if I don't get around to fixing up the machine right away I love it for it's history and the table looks quite nice as a decorative or serving piece.
Definitely worth the $10 price tag
