#Salvaged Antique Sewing Machine Projects

I love working with all kinds of salvaged bits, pieces and parts, but one of my favorite things to find is broken antique sewing machines and tables. There are so many wonderful parts that can be used to turn into unique new projects.
This funky magnetic memo board was created from the top of the sewing machine table. It is super useful, with a memo pad clip, a rusty cup to hold pens and pencils, hooks for keys and scissors, and an old funnel, to use as a string dispenser, or to hold a cell phone.
These pretty legs got old barn wood added to the top to make a beautiful, rustic new table.
This part was turned into a wall rack for plates!

    I took the base of my old sewing machine and made it into my new bathroom sink. The drawers remain for storage.

    I sew on antique sewing machines. Most often they need no more than generous oiling and, occasionally, a minor repair. Then they are ready for another 100+ years of sewing. It's very sad to see machines and irons that could have continued their intended

      Dora S Couldn't agree more. My Singer is from 1886. Singer still makes parts for all of them. If you have a Treadle Machine, you might want to research it before you scrap it. It can be worth hundreds more as it is. Quilters prize these old machines.

    To finish my comment: boards we distressed & I stained very dark-this was a Great find since the Sears & Roebuck is wrote in the pedal & all parts were still on base but the machine itself! (His 1st project in repurposing too) Now we have just a naked
