Antique Singer Sewing Machine Dining Room Table

When my husband and I moved to Brooklyn, we knew we still wanted a dining room table, but we had to downsize. We Craigslist-ed our previous dining room table and began the search for a dining room table that had as much pre-war character as our new apartment.

My mother had purchased a Singer sewing machine (circa 19020's) from an antique store but hadn't used it in a long time, so she offered this as an option. Her idea was to use the base and remove the original sewing machine top, as this was hardly an eating surface to build this old sewing machine table.

I found an Ikea tabletop for $19.99, and along with my family's assistance, we affixed the new tabletop to the base, added a runner, and Voila! We're pretty darn proud of it, we must admit, and it's now our favorite piece of furniture!

Pas mal pour le coup d’oeil, mais pas idéal pour caser ses jambes pendant le repas!

That is a great idea. The table is beautiful! ( In the kitchen, the Y and the M on the wall are turned around the wrong way. Check a thick and thin font like Times Roman, and you’ll see the difference.) Have a great day!

This one’s hard for me. It’s done beautifully, but I like to restore old machines. Some are to the point of having to head to the scrap heap, so at least PART remains, I suppose… Still, they’re wonderful old examples of beautifully designed turn-of-the-century equipment. I have a 1889 Singer treadle that works. <3
