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…
