A while back I hit the “Sewing Table Jackpot”
& by jackpot I mean I got three sewing tables
for a very good deal & by good deal I mean practically free.
I had never worked on a sewing table a day in my life,
so I wasn’t sure what I was getting into…
but so far I have completed two & I love them.
Here is table one of three…
Don’t you just love her quirky shape & that color is
to die for.
The color I used for this piece is Twilight Meadow from
Valspars new spring line.
I bought a few of their color pre packaged samples from Lowe’s
for $2.97 & the color sample was more than enough
to paint this piece & have lots of leftover paint.
I posted this picture to Instagram when I bought my
colors… Aren’t they stunning?
New favorite paint color for sure.
It really is the perfect turquoise.
I did love the beautiful wood on the table, so I decided
to sand the top of the table & stain it with a dark walnut stain.
& this lovely vintage table just gets better & better…
The sewing machine inside the table is beautiful & in perfect condition.
I haven’t tried using it yet, but the seller said it works.
Such a lovely vintage piece!
To antique this piece, I simply used 80 grit sandpaper &
sanded in the areas where I thought there would be
normal wear & tear.
I wanted this piece to be very shabby chic, so I sanded
a lot to add more drama.
