This was formerly an antique sewing table that I re-purposed into a side table. I love furniture pieces that are versatile and this piece fits the bill. It is desk height (30") so it works well as a side table next to a sofa or chair with higher arms. It could be used in a craft room for projects or as a small writing desk. Or on a sun porch. Or tucked in a nook . . . well you get the picture!

|Little metal box to hold attachments.|
|Sweet little oil can!|
The color scheme I chose for this piece is Versailles (a light green), Old White, and hints of Antoinette Pink. The pink initially played a larger role, but I just wasn't feeling it, so I played up the white instead. There are tiny hints of pink on the rosettes and inside the interior storage cubbies. It has medium distressing throughout to accentuate it's vintage cottage charm.

would press a knee against it to run the machine.
