Antique Finds

I'm a big lover of old furniture and antiques; however, refinished items can be very pricing. How fortunate are we to have received two large pieces for FREE! My husband's co-worker is moving and wanted to get rid of some old pieces he has no use for. So when I saw this old Singer sewing machine, I needed to have it. It was his grandmothers...I'm not sure how old it is but it does have a date of 1911 on it. So then or after I assume.

I LOVE the old pressor foot (is that what its called?). It still moved back and forth, but I have not connected it to the machine to see if it's functioning.

As you can see it's pretty beat up, but I still love it. I have another old singer sewing cabinet, but not as old as this one.

In another vanity piece we received, the drawers were filled with all this old craft stuff. This old Singer buttonholer, complete with case and instructions! Again, no clue how old...I'm thinking 70's????

I'm not quite sure what I want to do with this piece...I was thinking of removing the machine, filling the hole and using it as a console type that bad of me to want to alter it? I would keep the sewing machine and display it in my sewing room...polish it up and make it pretty. We'll see...
