Sometimes You Just Gotta Leave 'em Be: Antique Sewing Machine
I got this beauty for a STEAL at a garage sale! Any guesses on the price? And, when I took it home I tried to brainstorm how I would make it even better, but couldn't come up with anything. It was gorgeous just the way it was!
Now, it was very dirty and the legs were all rusty, so it got a little cleaning, but, you guys, that is it!

Ribbons, buttons, even the ancient instruction manual. It was like finding a treasure box!
If you want to see what I used to clean it up and restore the legs, you'll have to see the blog post: http://charmingimperfections.com/2015/09/antique-sewing-table-gets-cleaned-and-restored.html

I have one like yours that I refinished and use as an end table. I also have the legs and was lucky enough to find a marble (candy making) slab at a house sale that fits! It also looks great. I had priced out stone, granite scraps . I was very happy to find the marble. Really makes a beautiful all purpose table
