Antique Adding Machine…

 (This post featured on Miss Mustard Seed’s Furniture Friday)

I recently required this sweet antique adding machine from my neighbor.  They were weeding out a bit of what they called “junk” from their garage and wondered if there was anything I was interested in.  Over in the corner of the garage on a wonderful little primitive cabinet sat this…

Imagine the days when the convenience of this adding machine first came out.. oh how much easier it made doing the pay roll and accounting tasks at the office! AND…it was PORTABLE!!! WOW!  It only weighs around 20lbs!!  Ha!

The only problem is I can’t keep the kids off of the buttons…we’ve been playing office since it came to live here :0)

    • Hi Delia! Yes, I did do the chair in this post. I love Restoration Hardware but can’t afford the real deal so I tried to make my own. :0) I love this chair! Thanks for stopping by!

Thoughts on this table??? Creating a beautiful rustic outdoor dining area... this entire table is salvaged wood. The base found separately from the top and joined together to form this unique outdoor living space. Along with the chandelier we added in some beautiful patio lights on the beams creating a dreamy setting for a lovely summer evening outside.  Playing along with @prodigalpieces today #trashure #thecuratorscollection #design #outdoorliving #patio #rustic #reclaimedwood FATTABULOUS time spent today with Angie of @absolutecustomdesigns helping with a FAT PAINT workshop.
