I’m not supposed to be shopping for furniture right now. Ugh. We’re moving in just a couple of weeks…our current house is jam packed with boxes, disassembled furniture, baby bouncers and play gyms, and I’m on strict orders- NO NEW FURNITURE until we’re in the new house. Grrr. But I caaaaaaaan’t stop dreaming about decorating in the new house! So sue me.
Oh brother, one little teensie weensie stop to the thrift store isn’t gonna kill anybody.
Scanning past the dinged up bookcases and tweed sofas, my eyes landed on THIS little beauty. The most lovely little end table, ever.
Perfectly loved. Refined. Simple.
But after a moment, I noticed the hinges…OH MY!
I actually hadn’t heard of Free-Westinghouse before, so I’m still researching, but it feels like a score to me! Other than needing a new belt, she’s in great shape, and sews smoothly.
Came with the original manual, and an accessory box packed full of crazy looking attachments- 13 feet to be exact, and I’m pretty sure one of them will do my taxes for me.
Aaaaannd, how cool is this- there is no foot pedal. I mean, there is, but it’s a knee pedal! Permanently mounted on the right underside of the table, so you press the gas with your knee! It’s actually ridiculously awesome. I wish all of my machines had a knee pedal. So brilliant. No cords getting tangled up- just neat and tidy- always ready to go.
And best of all, it’s completely hidden in this pretty little table, that I will love to have in my home, machine or not. I’ll probably put it in the living room, or maybe my bedroom, with a simple chair nearby….ready to pull up a seat and stitch a few seams anytime.
