Sewing Table Reveal!

Almost a year ago we found a vintage sewing table at a church rummage sale for about $25 (the price include a huge box of vintage fabric too!). It's faux wood and totally fit my old Singer. Not the most gorgeous piece of furniture in the world, but it had character and it served its function well.

First, the before shot . . . although, I should mention that I forgot to get the shot until she was already being taken apart! Oops!



A sad, sad sight, no? Well now, with a bit of spiffying up, may I introduce the new and improved sewing cabinet:


Isn't she just a vision in red?! She just makes me so happy! We still need to find some new hardware for her (the old hardware is pretty unmentionably awful, in that kind of late 1960s greenish brassy way!). And now for the full glamour shot:


Pretty nifty, eh?! Look at all that interior storage for scissors and seam rippers (er, not that I ever need a seam ripper with my sewing!), and such! I'm just so excited to be getting a-sewing in style! Any votes on a name?

She's going to be such a great addition to my new sewing room. Yay!

  2. I love it! The red is awesome. What about spray painting the old hardware black. I recently painted some old (ugly old not classy vintage old)green brass looking hardware in the shower/tub and was surprised at all of the awesome finishes that are available.

    1. Great suggestion! But this hardware is REALLY, really ugly! Not sure even paint could help! Can't wait to hear how the camping went--hope you survived!
