Pretty in Pink

Remember this sweet little sewing table? I just loved the scallop edge! Instead on reinventing this into a writng desk and or laptop desk I decided to keep it for its original purpose, to house a sewing machine. Alice who was kind enough to pass this on to me has the sewing machine and it still works. We thought it would make a great functional display piece in a sewing/craft room.
Here it is after, pretty in pink. The sewing machine is brown so I thought brown, white and pink a perfect combination! I went whimsical and had lots of fun!
Diamond design on top and some circles on the sides.
Diamond design inside, sorry the sewing machine hasn't been added. I will share another photo once it has.
My favorite part are the stripes when you open the front.
I am please how it turned out and it will look great in any sewing/craft room. I get lots of questions on how I paint my diamonds so I decided to do a tutorial. It is super easy, watch for it over the weekend! You will all be painting diamonds everywhere!

  7. I love that sewing machine cabinet. I have an old one (with the old machine inside) and have pondered what to do with it. I doubt that I can paint it that well, but I will look for your tutorial. Thank you!

  14. I love fantasy pieces. Do you ever look at Mackenzie-Childs furniture? They have lots of patterns together -- you might like the look. Hope you will have time to come take our tour of the Architectural Digest Home Design show. -- Jane F
