    Oh, that is so cute! With everything painted white like that you hardly notice the pipes. Nice top on it, too.

    Very cool! I never would have thought of something like this. Fits right in with us antique/vintage enthusiasts.

    Cool idea but I would have the faucet lower so you wouldn't get splash back.

    I recently saw an old sewing machine cabinet like that, unpainted though, that had been cut down to be a coffee table, was really cute!

    Wow! What a smart idea!! I am using my MamMaw's with big top on it for cutting/pressing. My uncle had it for yrs after she passed & it stayed in his dirt floored garage a long time, so when I got it, the cabinet was so rotten. But did salvage the head & the stand. Took the stand to a pressure care wash to remove rust & painted it black... I can remember her making me a yellow taffeta prom dress on it. Want to display the head but don't know where + it would just collect dust.

    That is a great idea. It could even been done with the cabinet left in place to help cover the pipes.

    I made the one I have into a plant stand. The wood was broken a the machine ddidn't work. I just took every thing off and put a wrought iron grate on it . It's a great stand.
