    from old desk to sewing desk

    I found this old desk on craigslist for $15 bucks. I had my son remodel it just a bit so the machine sets down in it. The knee hole drawer and the top right drawer aren't use able as drawers any more but I still have 5 nice drawers. The knee hole drawer has a stack of wood just the right height to support one end of the shelf for the machine. The other end has a support attached to the inside end of the desk.

    You may want to check out the hardware store. You can get the hardware to take off the knee hole drawer front and turn it into one of those tilt-out drawers on some old treadle machines. I use the one on my treadle for the small things like extra feet, bobbins, screwdrivers, etc.

    Just a thought.

    Beautiful, by the way. Love the old waterfall furniture.
