MARTHA WASHINGTON SEWING CABINET

Another one of my finds at
at a yard sale. This is called
a Martha Washington sewing
cabinet.


I believe the wood is oak. It has three drawers
and on the sides two deep wells that are great
for holding books, patterns, knitting needles etc.


As you can see I use the drawers to hold my
embroidery floss. If I buy anymore I will have
to use the side wells.

Wow that is a really nice piece of furniture to have. Very handy. And it seems like you came up with great ideas to use it for. And plus it looks really nice. I like the wood. It looks really nice. Your drapes I've noticed look lovely to. I love those kind that just fall to the ground like that. So pretty.
Thank you for reminding me it was Friday the 13th. I completley forgot! Have a nice day! ☺

This unusual piece reminds me of a deacon's bench I saw at the Thomas Edison Birthplace in Milan, OH. The bench had been fitted with rockers AND across half of the front of the seat, a railing similar to the one on you little table. The tour guide said it was made with these adaptations so that Mrs. Edison could rock her babes while sewing, knitting, etc...ingenious!
