Kaija Mummu used to sew lamp shades for a living and this is the table she used. She loved to tell stories about her job and the people she worked with and what Toronto was like back in the day. This sewing table has a lot of sentiment behind it as well as being pretty darn awesome! I'm glad I've found the perfect spot for it in our living room. The table is in pretty good shape, but it could probably use some oiling/refinishing.
This is the brand name on the inside: "Horn Moebel". I googled it, but didn't find that much information on the company.
The cabinet also has this great lock and key. It locks the door to the sewing machine part as well as all the drawers which is perfect for keeping my little guys out of there.
So this is what it looks like once you open it up and lift the sewing machine up. I put my own sewing machine on the lift and yes, my sewing machine discoloured on the one plastic panel!?
The door to the cabinet accordian folds and the top of the cabinet flips open and is supported by the door. The other half of the top lifts up and slides behind the cabinet. There's a little damage from an iron on the inside.
Oh, and just because I like pictures that show "real life" as well. :)
