No Sew Project

Remember this sewing table I converted way back when? Well ever since then I have been on the lookout for another to transform. It has to be just right. I must like the overall look of it, good legs etc. since these are everywhere.I found one at Salvation Army a while back. The bottom of one leg was broken so it sat wobbly, unwanted. The price was too high for me to pay especially if the table couldn't be salvaged. There is sat for three weeks and finally on the half off day it was still there and I brought her home. Luckily Chris cut the bottoms off the other legs so it now sits normal.

(sorry for the blurry pics, I had already taken the table to The Shops at 25 West when I loaded the pictures or I would have taken some others)

I painted the top and sides of this one only. I decided to keep it simple.

Chris removed the sewing machine and added a small compartment for storage that I lined with old dictionary pages.

Hope you enjoyed my "no sew" project.

I am linking up to Miss Mustard Seeds, please go so the other fabulous projects!

  3. Such a simple remedy....cutting the other 3 legs to match!!

  4. This is gorgeous, Christina! I don't recall seeing the first one, so that was a treat to see, too! What a great way to repurpose a piece of furniture and it is really a perfect little table for those small spaces that just need something.

  5. Hi, What a great idea for a boring old sewing machine cabinet. I think I'll give mine a paint job. Thanks for the inspiration and have a great holiday.

  6. I LOVE the patterns! Amazing transformation.

  7. Both of those pieces are gorgeous! I love the (is that hand painting or scrapbook paper or both?) whatever it is that you put in the top and sides. The second piece also has great hardware and drawer details. Those are fabulous pieces and you should snatch those us any time you find them. Well done!

  8. How clever of you. It turned out great. Just like an expensive, custom piece of furniture.

  9. What a gorgeous transformation! Well done.

  10. You are very talented. I wish that I was closer so I could visit your shop.


  11. Darling!! What a great idea.
