The Free


Well here it is to date.  
The drawer pulls are the originals.  They were in one of the drawers - amazing that they weren't lost!
She isn't perfect but not bad for her age.  
I think from my research that this was built between 1897 and 1919.

Now the question is...
To decoupage or not to decoupage.

I have this really pretty paper.  I cut it out last night but haven't decided what I want to do just yet.  I haven't put the clear coat on the sewing machine cabinet yet and will wait until I decide if I want to decoupage or not???

If you have input I would love to hear it.


  1. OH , How absoulutely beautiful. I remember my grandmother sewing on one ,just like this.What fond memories.
    I love it , just as it is.. But the decoupage woud be pretty too.. But I vote not.. Can't wait to see what you do ?? thanks for sharing.

  2. After looking at it for a while I decided it really doesn't need the decoupage. I'm pleased with the way it turned out. :-)

  3. You did a beautiful job of refinishing the sewing machine. I think I like it without the decoupage, but after time you could add it to change it up.

  4. You did a wonderful job with refinishing the sewing machine. Enjoy it for a while without the decoupage and later you could add it.

  5. It's beautiful! Evelyn had a great idea about waiting to decide on the decoupage. Either way it's stunning.


  6. It's beautiful, Robin! I love it, just the way you have finished it. Well done! And such a treasure!
