April 19 – Early Mother’s Day Gift

I have been on the search lately for an old fashion sewing machine cabinet. I knew that I would have to made modifications to work with my machine. But I was willing. I located a wonderful cabinet on my local Craigslist. I have been watching it as the days past, I just couldn’t decide if I could make it work, if I wanted to spend the $70, yeah.. I am cheap thrifty and it sometimes takes me a while to decide to purchase something. Sometimes I wait too long and miss the deal but I chalk it up to “It wasn’t meant to be”.

I was pleasantly surprised when my daughters brought home my mother’s day gift today, and it was the cabinet. Isn’t is a beauty!

Upon further inspection I believe this to be a handmade cabinet, perhaps two cabinets turned into one. As you can tell the front is clearly 1960’s. But inside it has drawers that are reminiscent of another decade.

I had done some research on the lifts that are available and the cost ranges from $160 to $260 dollars. I think I can beat that. Just have to let my mind think about it for a few days.

Hope everyone has a Happy Easter!
