It's too bad the seller didn't bother to show how it works, or at least add a picture with the doors open. It also would have been nice if the instructions weren't out of focus.

However it works, it seems to be an awkward piece of furniture for a sewing cabinet.

Might be just right for some people. IIRC the table folds out like a built in ironing board with the machine on it plus there's plenty of storage and it's all in a small footprint.

Really, Shabby Chic?? How about we rub some whitish paint all over everything.

I hate that. Have you ever tried stripping paint off oak? Think quality time with a dental pick to get the stuff out of the pores. Walnut is almost as bad. I truly detest stripping paint even when I know the results are worth it.
Shabby-Chic has been around for at least ten years maybe it'll go out of style soon.

That was a waste of expensive paint. They could have done so much better.

It's certainly shabby. Not really chic, though.

Do real people put that shabby stuff in their houses or is it just stuff for sale in antique stores and on CL??? I've never been in a house that had it. I think it would be depressing and there is enough of that going around...

Yep. Some people pay a lot of money for that phony distressed furniture.

It's probably the same sort that buy treadle irons with a slab of marble or a piece of wood slapped on them.

Etsy is full of that kind of stuff.
