Vintage Sewing Table Number Two

Last week I introduced you to three sewing
tables that I had picked up & also
showed off the first one after it’s makeover which you can go
see {here}. Here is the second sewing table
all finished & looking fabulous in duck egg blue…

 If you follow me on Instagram {here} {or search lizmariegalvan}, you probably saw
these photos of the “before” of this lovely table…

Just like the last table, the wood was in pretty good condition
so I wanted to incorporate the wood in the finished product…

 The blue I used is called mackinaw Grand Hotel
blue by valspar {yay for my Michigan people!!}

 I decided to keep the original hardware because of it’s
quality & quirky shape. It has a certain vintage charm
that added to this pieces character.

 I slightly distressed this piece to add to the vintage feel.

 The sewing machine inside has just as much charm as the rest of the
piece.. & it actually works! How great is that?
This table would look great staged with the sewing machine out in a
craft room. I am developing an obsessing with vintage sewing
machines now.. yes, another obsession.. oops.. haha

For the wood top & drawers, I simply sanded them down a little,
applied a walnut stain, & sealed with a polyurethane.

 Even though the drawers on the front aren’t really
for storage, this table would still be great for
an end table or nightstand.


What do you think of the second sewing table re-do?
I love the amount of natural wood showing & I think it makes
this piece very unique. Share your thoughts
in the comments below or on the facebook page {here}.
I look forward to hearing from you!

Talk to you soon…

  1. What is the paint you used here – the “duck egg blue?” Would love to know! Thanks!

    It’s beautiful! I always love the wood with the paint combos. I hate totally covering up beautiful wood (and I think that table may be mahogany – at least it looks like it!).

    I am an ok sewer, but I have lots of memories of my mom and Grandma sewing when I was a little girl, so I too love sewing tables.

    Great job, as always!


    • Thank you so much Jenny! My love for sewing tables is truly growing.. I’m glad you share the love for them :) & I’m glad you like the wood being left natural as well. Thanks so much for your kind words!

    Hi! I love the distress look. How do you do it?

    • Hi! I usually just sand in places that I think would be naturally worn over time. I really do not do anything complex or special.. I hope this helps!

    It looks ammmmmazing. But I wouldn’t expect anything less from you (:

    • Thanks Christine!

    • Ive been pondering anheotr question -if MIB and Widmore are on opposite sides as seems clear now -why do they BOTH want the candidates dead? Lets not forget that Widmore sent those mercenaries to get Ben and kill the rest -he is not the good guy he is pretending to be. I also believe he helped Locke find them all and return them to the Island so they could be killed -OR he found out between these times that they are candidates (how? Who knows. We know Bram and Ilana werent on his side so it would be odd if Jacob spoke to Widmore). Also -everyone is saying 3 candidates dies in the sub -NO -only 2 Sayid and Kwon (whichever one it is/was) so that leaves 4 candidates left. We have Jack, Sawyer and Hurley. Kate was ruled out in the podcast today so that leaves -Who? Widmore? Ben? Desmond? My hypothesis is Widmore and that he wanted the other candidates killed so he wold be the last one and then have the Island to himself finally. One snag -whats up with the electromagnetic sites hes plotting and what is Desmonds sacrifice? Thoughts????

  5. Turned out beautiful! I love the color choice you used, it really brings out the warmth in the wood!

    • Thank you so much! My thoughts in the beginning of the light color were not intentional.. but I love how the contrast turned out so drastic!

  6. You’re amazing. I love every piece of furniture that you do. I just wish we lived a lot closer because I have 2 pieces I’m dying to have you makeover!!!


  7. Love this!!! That sewing machine is such a great find! Love that original hardware- so glad you saved it! Thanks for sharing!

  8. It’s super cute Liz! I love that the sewing machine actually works- very cool!!

  9. Hello stopping by from the Mingle Monday blog hop. I am your new linky follower and I love what you did with the tables. Love the color that you used, would mind me asking what is the name of the color

  10. A great combination. Thanks for sharing the paint name. That is always good to know. I get so many samples that end up being no good that to have a go-to color is a huge plus. Found this post at Miss Mustard Seed!

  11. I’m always impressed by how much you are able to dress something up to look so stunning. Good luck to your father in law, I hope he gets better soon!

  12. I LOVE this table! So cool … inspiring me to tackle anew project for the house. :)

  13. Hi Liz! Your blog IS very lovely. This post caught my eye from the Someday Crafts Blog Hop, and I am your newest follower.
