Garage Sale Find...

The week before Christmas I bought this old sewing machine cupboard for $10.
It was in need of some TLC, but I think it came up ok. I rubbed it back with some fine steel wool and then gave it a polish over. It's not perfect as it could really do with a strip back and fix up but this will do for the time being.

The top lifts over and you pull the sewing machine up. The front door opens and it even has the original book, bobbin box and oil can.

The machine itself is in good condition.

I wasn't going to buy the cupboard, thinking where am I going to put it, then I saw the name on the machine "White Rotary" and since my surname is White I thought why not...sold!

I am not sure I am happy with where I have put it, so it might get moved around a bit, I might try the corner in the main bedroom next!

Enjoy your day!


  1. Karen,I would leave it just as it is. The little polish has made it very nice.xx jeanetteann
