Pottery Barn is now selling "an icon of cottage industry," vintage sewing machines as a decorator item. Makes a great table topper! And only $199!
And I thought my quilting projects were getting in the way of our home's decor! Little did I know, these projects are the decor! Of course, my usual machine is not vintage. But I have another one that could qualify and my mother has a Brother sewing machine from the mid 50's. And I know she never uses it to sew (she brings it all to me to do for her). That Brother is just waiting to become a decorator object!
(far too neat to be a real sewing space)
Combine with some piles of fabric to make it more authentic. If you really like this decorating idea, you can get one on eBay for a lot less than $199. I like this vintage Singer.
What will be next? Omnigrid rulers as wall art?
