One of my favorite things about having a cottage chic house is the flexibility in furniture styles. Beside my bed, I have a small ladies desk for my night table and Dave has a 60's sewing table. It's the kind that had the sewing machine attached. We have a similar one from the 1900s in our living room that has the sewing machine still intact.
Since I love to sew, it makes sense to have this kind of ephemera in our house.
I was getting tired of all the brown and after looking at some pictures on the net for inspiration, I decided to paint it. I'm so glad I did. It's so much more charming than it used to be.
The stool underneath is one that I've had for years and just keep on recovering. That's the great thing about antique and vintage furniture. You know it's built well, and has withstood the test of time. I've stood on that sewing table before. It's SOLID.
