Repurposed Antique Sewing Machine

by Keith
This old Singer had been sitting in a barn for many years waiting to be rediscovered. Restoration wasn't an option, but a vanity was. The top was re-hinged to fold up (instead of to the left), the machine was removed and a material covered storage box was built and put in its place. The antique chair (a $4 yard sale find) was repaired and painted to match.
