How I transformed the old “singer” sewing machine table.
This was another great find. Cheap & old sewing machine table… Once I saw it I had a plan for it. Here is what we are talking about:
Table was missing the sewing machine (which I didn’t need anyway) and some other parts like the big wheel underneath. So I removed extra part in the middle as you can see from the picture. This made the table lighter and it looked neat after. Also I had to remove old varnish because it was chipping. It was an easy and fast job surprisingly. I just scraped the varnish away.
With the drawers I didn’t even bother to take the varnish off, I just took off the layer of veneer (don’t mind my sun-tea). I used chisel to lift up the edge of it =>
After that I removed top part from the iron stand and spray-painted it with the Rustoleum “Hammered antique pewter”.
It looked great already 🙂 Then it was time to straighten up the wooden top. I wanted it to have a lot of useful storage space, so my plan was to build a nice box inside and under the lid. Some wood planks, saw, nails, husband and some sort of the thinnest plywood for the bottom part of the box were required. I had to remove side drawer boxes to nail thing together. Lots of disassembling, that’s for sure.
When the box was in, I painted the whole thing with the chalk paint.
After some work the rewarding results were coming along:
I replaced the original handles with the home depot ones. Sprayed them the same colour as the stand. Also I lined up the storage box with the burlap, I will show you the technique I use to do this in the other post. It is very easy and fast method. The finishing product I used for this table needs its own post as well, so keep in touch, please <3
That is one stylish table I might say 🙂 Thank you for reading, please leave your thoughts and feedback below, I will be happy to communicate.
