Sewing Table Makeover

Living room makeover project #2 Sewing Table.

I was trolling Craigslist one day and I found this awesome sewing table.  I fell in love with it.  I just loved the style and it’s overall look, I knew when I saw it that I wanted it.  I really am happy with the end results.





My hubby sanded it down for me, and then I painted it, I love the contrast of the black top with the white underneath.  Then I sanded part of the paint off and rubbed stain all over it including the top, then wiped it off, rubbed it on wiped it off you know the drill.


I love the original hardware, but they needed a little help so I spray painted those a nice silver and let some of the old color shine through on the edges for a little bit of contrast. 








Project #1  – Burnt Lunch Sack Wreath

Project #3 – Sewing Chair

Project #4 – End Table
