Are you ready for the secret reveal?

Vintage Sewing Table With Pop-out Thread Holder  ~ vintagestreetdesigns (17)OK, I’m going to admit something to you even though I felt a little dumb at the time ~ when I first saw this piece, I thought the top drawer was broken ’cause I couldn’t get it open.  Then my husband walked up to it, pushed on the left side while pulling on the right and voila…it popped right open!  How cool is that?  There is NO WAY I would have ever thought it was a swinging drawer front.  (I’ll know from now on!)
