Four ways to repurpose an old sewing machine
We remember them from the grandparents’ house – small metal monsters we found creepy, but that did wonders once in use of skilled hands. Two American women have taken old sewing machines from home and instead of throwing them away or sell them to the antique shop, they have found another use for them at home. The pictures below speak for themselves about four ways to repurpose an old sewing machine.
On HomeJelly.com, blogger Skai Knox shows how she transformed an old piece of metal into something fabulous and useful in the house, based on her creative design sensibility. The first picture shows the old Singer sewing machine receiving a new role – a glass table. With its vintage air the new table certainly impresses visitors and has a strong visual effect in the room. It only took some wire brush scrubbing and painting the legs of the old sewing machine to get the new home design item. (see the opening picture)
The second form that old sewing machine can take in the house or around is depicted in the photo below: a large pot for plants. This time, the blogger turned to an old wood crate to finally create a planter with the same vintage look and a unique chromatic harmony.
In its third reincarnation, the old sewing machine Bowls takes the form of a base for the bathroom sink. Encased in wood and with a copper front, the finished product is of a remarkable beauty. For those with more practical ideas, the pedal of the old sewing machine can serve as a towel rack in the bathroom.
On Knickoftime.net we find the last idea of the four ways to repurpose an old sewing machine which is out of use. Tripping on it around the house, Angie has found a new role for the old object instead of throwing it away. After a brainstorming session, the old sewing machine turned into a useful storage space suspended on one of the doors of the house. Taking advantage of the holes already in the metal legs, Angie only attached several old baking trays and obtained what you see in the pictures below.
