fly away birdie

i spent yesterday and today restoring this delightful little side table/sewing box. it's such a sweetie and will be on ebay soonly.


before...

after...

when the lid is closed it can be used as a normal coffee table, but then boom! open it up to find a compartment for all things you need to sew. i have altered the underside of the lid so it can be used as a giant pin cushion, so no pretty little pins get lost, and you can't really see it that well, but into the cushion part i've sewn the silhouette of a bird.
inside the little drawer they is a metal bar that is used for keeping all your cotton reels on, so they stay all neat and untangled.
