    Default Federal Style Martha Washington Sewing Cabinet

    So excited. Went to an estate sale today (surprise, surprise) with a friend. Went specifically to pick up this Federal style Martha Washington sewing cabinet. Never knew that they made them w/the inlays. We were #19 & 20 thru the door. She saw it and called me over to look at it. A couple of people were standing just behind me waiting to get their hands on it. Not happy when I took the tag. Look at the details in the inlays. Needs a little Howard's Restor A Finish.

    Wow, I have one just like it! I had no idea what it was called.
    Mine doesn't have that nice inlay though but they are great cabinets.
    Enjoy your new treasure!!!!!!!!

    I have had one for years. Love it. Mine needed refinishing when I got it.

    I almost bought one of these years ago at a consignment store but passed it up thinking it was too pricey. The one you just got is beautiful! Enjoy!
