Antique Sewing Base Tables

My brother is in England right now with his little family. I am so jealous! I want to go so bad one day. I am obsessed with old world architecture. But while he was eating in a cute little cafe near Buckingham Palace (it makes you sick. I know.) he noticed the tables and thought that I would appreciate them. And I do. 

It is an old singer sewing machine base with a marble top. How clever and cute! I love it!

 I want to go rummage through my Grandparents stuff now and try to find one to use. What a great way to combine the old with the new. My sister-in-law has one and she uses it as a little side table in her bedroom! It looks so good. But here are some other ideas I have found.

I love the simple design of this desk. I could see myself at it!

This one they turned into a long dining table with 3 bases. SO clever.

And you can never have enough white wrought iron accents in your backyard or garden, right?
So next time you are offered an old sewing machine by an OLDER relative...take it! 
Like I is a great way to fuse together old heritage with new life and still keep it functional and beautiful.
