Sewing Cabinet

So lately I was thinking it would be nice to have a sewing cabinet that was compact enough to fit in the dining room for the Featherweight. I started trolling Craig’s List hoping to find something for around $50. I immediately came upon a listing for exactly what I was looking for that included a built in chair! In fact I think the chair made me just fall in love with it. After a few emails and lost emails, I finally got in touch with the woman who listed the cabinet this morning. She said her apartment was just too small to keep this any longer. It was priced at $50 which just happened to be my winnings from a scratch ticket last week! I had tucked the $50 away for future vacation souvenir money but saw this and decided to go for it instead.

I picked it up this morning and it turned out to be just a bit lighter in color than the listing photo showed but it still goes ok with the dining room table and the piano. I raced upstairs to get the Featherweight and was slightly disappointed to see that the width of the Featherweight is about a 1/2 inch wider than the opening. My other machines will fit fine though…and the Featherweight can still sit atop the cabinet and be used from there.

Under the chair is a pull-out a drawer that is quite roomy and has a space to put spools of thread! I am feeling so lucky to have found this little gem! I guess it’s a Christmas gift to myself…

Here it is…do you own a table like this with the hidden chair? I didn’t even know there was such a thing.

  1. Looks great! What a find!

  2. It’s really cute Sandi! And I love the hidden chair! It needs a cushion, hint hint! :))) Can you ask Hubby to make the hole a little bigger so you can fit Snow White in?

  3. That’s very cute. I’ve not seen a hidden chair like that–fantastic. First thing you should sew yourself is a cute chair cushion! Sorry the featherweight doesn’t fit–is there any way someone with a router could shave off more space? In any case, what a great find and Merry Christmas!

  4. Love it! What a great early Christmas gift. This is just so cute and compact. Does the sewing cabinet have any information on it as to the company that make this style?

    Terrific find. I’m going over to Craig’s List this instant to see what treasure I can find. I won $4 on a scratch ticket the other day! :)

  6. What a steal! A lovely find! When you have no more room for it, I will take it!
