Re-Purposed Antique Singer Sewing machine and Coffee Table


Hi One More Time readers, before I get started here with this post, I want to take the time to thank all of you that actually take the time to read the post,  but most of all I would like to thank the ones that are following One More Time and leaving all the wonderful comments!  You all make blogging and sharing a wonderful experience!
This Singer sewing machine base,  (no sewing machine or top) was given to us around Christmas time,  it was so rusted that the treadle wouldn't even budge.
Mr. OMT looked into getting it sandblasted, but it was going to cost $65.00, ouch!  So, what is a Mr.OMT to do? Well, of course new tools, (I am starting to catch on now…new project, tools) which consisted of a new air compressor and a sand blasting unit…can we say Merry Christmas Mr. OMT. (he is worth it) he always has the story of I will be able to do more projects…which he knows that makes me happy!
Take a look at what he did…

this is not black this is pure rust!

(Does anyone need anything sand blasted?)
we found this coffee table at a garage sale, when we got it home we noticed one of the legs was cracked, but it wasn't a complete waste 

it was added to the top of the Singer sewing machine base

Isn't it pretty? Shiny and New! 

A While back I found this piece it was missing the base


and then this piece at a local thrift store. I couldn't find a candle to fit this, so it sat for awhile just like this, until one day I got this idea

Antique Irons serve as bookends to some old books my mother in-law gave me


love the drop down leafs and convenient when more space is needed

 this was not it's original plan, originally a wood top was going to be added and I was going to paint or stencil a saying on it, but I really like how this piece turned out!  Able to re-purpose two pieces into one, now that's what I call fun!


pssst… we are redoing our spare room into a guest room, in there will be a Antique Iron Bed that needs some work done on it…guess what??? Mr. OMT bought a welder.
 What's a DIY'er to do? New project…New Tool!!!

I created this mood board in hopes our new guest room will look something like this…we have most of the pieces and I have completed the night stands and will share in the next post.  If you would like to follow along and see this become reality, we would love for you to subscribe or follow One More Time.

Guest Room

Thanks for visiting and we loved having you.  Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Dora, Thank you for the information on the age and yes it is sad that whoever had it didn't take care of it, but we were excited to turn it into something useful and we totally are enjoying in in our home. Thanks for taking the time to comment!

  2. Hmmmm…..I have one of those. It&#39;s from 1919. It has a top and a sewing machine, and I use it to make beautiful quilts.<br />Glad you made it useful–sad someone didn&#39;t take care of it before you got it.

  3. What a very informative site, I have found alot of very useful information here and still have a lot more to read. Thank you very much for the time and effort you have put in….

  4. I have never seen your blog before but I was so impressed by what you did I just had to post. I love the idea of using the base of an antique singer and adding a table top to it. It came out great. What a unique piece. I&#39;m sure you&#39;ll receive many compliments!

  5. That turned out NICE!! I love it, the guest room will look beautiful when its done too. So creative, and I love see things you two create together. ♥♥
