Various Ways To Reuse An Old Sewing Machine


Redecorating your home entails an effort of creativity and a well thought design ahead of any other planning. You could opt for the easy route and just shop for a one-of-a-kind piece of furniture from any design inclined store. But you don’t have to do that. There are plenty of DIY projects you could easily implement. Look at these ideas for an old sewing machine re-used as beautiful furniture. Transforming one such machine, Singer of any other brand for that matter, into a nice open sink cabinet, need only some coats of white paint and a matching slab of marble with a hole in it to install the sink. Likewise, you can replace the marble with a much cheaper wood and you can put the old sewing machine in a more rustic and warmer bathroom ambiance or in the dinning area. If you feel more creative, you can even turn the machine into a wooden chair. It depends on what you need in your home and how much do you want to work on the DIY. The important aspect is that you are free to make it look the way you like it and help you redecorate and improve the overall interior design of your home. Feel free to find new examples of re-purposing an old sewing machine. Good luck with the project!

    my old table fits the new JENGA game perfectly and is heavy duty enough to handle it!

    These are cabinets. What happened to the machines? A shame that old relics are not respected, merely cast off.

      We purchased old Singer complete with the original tools that came with it, an instruction booklet and the bill of sale. I would never take the machine out just to make something else out of it. I do have some décor sitting on top of it, but it is in it’s original state.

    i have an old sewing machine and cabinet and it is a dust magnet and hard as heck to get to all those little spaces.

  5. Lonnie says:

    those old machines were good. They could be serviced and used again once serviced. These new machines are just tossed aside and replaced with new machines.
    I’d much rather have a old machine.

    These old machines are still wonderful and can be used in third world countries where electricity is limited or non-existent. Women in these countries are learning to sew on them and are supporting their families.
    I would love to have an old Singer treadle machine or even just an old machine table.

    I just don’t understand why anyone would rather do something like this as opposed to keeping and restoring the antique Sewing Machine. I have the old singer machine in the cabinet and I will cherish til my dying day. I hope my children will do the same once I’m gone.
