sewing table salvage


This little project has been in the works for a while. After many months spent looking for an old treadle machine for my sewing room (and failing to justify $100-200 at antique shops), I found this sewing table at my go-to thrift store for $24! Win.

Make no mistake: it was not in good shape. The actual machine was long gone, treadle and wheel rusted solid, and, by the looks of it, the thing sat in a shed or shallow grave for about fifty years.
