Surprise Pop of Color

I found this sewing table at a garage sale for $5.00. FIVE bucks. Her legs are divine...but she still had a bunch of parts inside her that weren't needed. I looked at it for days trying to figure out how to take the guts out. My father-in-law looked at it, and 15 minutes later, the guts were gone. I heart him.

Picture this table as a dried out, dirty from sitting outside for years, wooden piece.

Now look at her!

And the pop of color

Wouldn't it be divine if there was a little shelf in there? Yeah...that's not in my skill set yet...but it should be!

Isn't it perfect for an entry table or a little bar??

How fun!

Karajeanne said...

That looks fabulous, what kind of paint did you use? If you say chalk I'm on my way to get some! You could easily get a shelf in there, perhaps you should "wonder" how it's done next time your father-in-law is around! I'm off to go explore your site.

Cozy Home Scenes said...

I love the legs and pop of color. Until you can get a real shelf, is there a way you could slide in a piece of wood or maybe a large cookie sheet or something to make the inside more functional? Something to consider if it will be a long time to figure out how to get a shelf on the bottome.

Now you are making me wish I hadn't sold my mom's old sewing table just because the machine itself had seen better days!

Kara said...

That girl's got great legs. Lovely transformation.

I seem to collect these old sewing machine cabinets, I have several in my house. But I never thought of painting the inside a different color. As soon as I saw it, I thought that I could turn one into a cute little vanity for Big Sister's room! I LOVE IT!

Brooke said...

Love the pop of color inside, it's so surprising!

Judi said...

I bet your father-in-law could put a nice little shelf in there...*s*..

I picked up an identical sewing table at my ReStore a few weeks back for $3. I just moved it in from the garage today but am still deciding how to spruce it up and use it. Yours looks great!
