So technically, this is Friday, but I wanted to share this fabulous thrift store find with you before I forget, and next week is going to be so busy around here.
I have been wanting to get a new table for sewing in the RV. The one I had is just a little bit too big, and has to be moved onto the bed every time we travel. Which means I have to move it onto the bed every morning then take it off every night. I was looking for something just like this, a sewing machine cabinet. This one was only $20 at a thrift store in Tallapoosa, Georgia!
The top opens up just like every sewing machine cabinet I have ever seen. When it is open, it is just a little bit too long for the space I have, but I can turn it sideways a little bit when I am sewing and it will open all the way up. The best part is that I can leave the sewing project out overnight if I want to and just close up the top out of the way.
One of the best parts of finding this cabinet is that the old sewing machine was still in it. I am sure that thing doesn’t work, and it must weigh 40 pounds, but I think the old sewing machines looked pretty neat. It will eventually go in my sewing room in the house as a display item.
The original box with all the sewing attachments and different feet for the sewing machine were in there too! This is such a great add on, I can’t believe I got it for only $20!
Oh, and can you believe the instruction manual was there, too? There is no date in the book, so I don’t know exactly how old this thing is, but I am loving this particular find!
