Using unusual items in the kitchen. Here a sewing table adds some additional counter space to our vintage kitchen.
I have been wanting a little table in the kitchen for the end of my counter. I run out of counter when serving dinner and need some extra real estate for needfuls. Yesterday, while straightening the garage, I noticed my mom's old sewing table in the back corner and a light went off in my head. Why not try it in the kitchen. Sadly the top is scratched because a certain someone had a tool chest stored on top.
For now I threw a little rooster towel on it but I think it really needs to be painted. A crisp white would look great. Do you have any ideas on colors that might look good in my kitchen?
This is a great place for our serving items at dinner time. I like to set everything sort of buffet style on the counter and have everyone serve themselves. An old cheese box holds our napkins now and salt and pepper shakers.
When's dinner? Around five usually. We eat early. Tonight it's barbecued hamburgers with sweet potato fries and corn on the cob.
My memories of my mom sewing at this table are sweet. Why didn't she make me learn to sew. I am just dying to learn. I have her old machine. I need to find a place to take lessons that are for super novice beginners.
I see some moving around in my future tomorrow.
