Antique Sewing Machine Table

I saw this table on my local FB classifieds.  It was sad...sad...sad.  Nobody wanted it.  Someone went to look at it and left it behind.  I went to check it out and realized it was in pretty rough shape. 
The hinges were broken on the flip top and there was some disgusting sticker peeling off the top.  I knew I could fix her up though. :)


 Before

Some of you must have a little faith in me because I listed this on my FB just like this and it still sold. :)

My client said she was thinking of something in Robin Egg blue, which is one of my favorite colors and along the lines of what I had intended for this piece when I bought it. 
*Little side story. I bought this about a month ago and it's been sitting in my garage.  I had a few custom orders to finish up before I got to it. When I decided to refinish it I knew what I wanted to do, but second guessed myself and ended up listing it on FB.  I thought if someone bought it and told me what they wanted it would be better.  As soon as it was sold I was so sad! Lol!  My hubby thinks I'm nuts and I think he just may be right!  I wanted to do what I wanted to do.  Well, upon talking with the woman who purchased it she said I was thinking something along the lines of Robin Egg blue and you can do whatever you want with it. Really? 

So, it all worked out in then end. :)


 After

When I finished painting it and doing the paper on the drawer front I put on the knob I had originally bought for it and just wasn't happy.  It just didn't look like I had imagined it would.  So, I made an impromptu visit to HL and found the perfect fix. :)




 It is so sweet.  I did dry brush a little Chappel Green from Farrow and Ball on it to give the color a little depth, but it's very subtle.  That color will be on an upcoming project, too!



This top came a long way!!  I peeled the sticker, sanded it smooth, and then gave it a coat of Java Gel from General Finishes. 


psst...I love my little milk bottles! 




Another successful rescue! :)

  4. I just spied this on Hometalk and I love it, love it, love it! I have an old awful looking sweing table that was my Gramma's. I've wanted to do something with it for a while, but kept coming up blank when trying to think what I could do. Right now, it is in my basement storage room or "the scary room" as my children refer to it, groaning under a box of old toys. She is going to get pretty very soon and I must thank you for sharing your beautiful project.

  10. هذه دروس وهدايا رائعة. من أول الأشياء التي نقوم بها عندما نضع كلبًا أو جروًا جديدًا في المنزل هو أن نبدأ في لمسه. أعني أننا نعطي الكلاب تدليكًا صباحيًا ، ونفرك آذانها ، ونمسك بمخالبها ، بل ونمنحها شدًا على ذيولها. يحصلون على الفراء والحمامات الدورية. بالإضافة إلى التنظيف والتدليك ، وما إلى ذلك ، فإن الغرض من ذلك هو تعويد الكلاب على التعامل معها كثيرًا. عندما يأتي أطفال الله في النهاية ، فإنهم يحبون التعامل مع الكلاب ولمسها. إذا أراد الجرو أن يعض ، فإنه يحصل على تعديل لطيف على أنفه ، ولكن المكون الرئيسي هو الكثير من الاهتمام ، وكلهم محبون ، ولديهم أشياء لإظهارها ...
