Singer Sewing Base Storage Table

Last fall we took a trip to The Great Florida Yard Sale. It takes place twice a year Spring and Fall on the west coast of Florida. It was a lot of fun a we found a few great treasures.

One purchase was a old Singer Sewing machine cabinet. You often see them at flea markets, usually just the bases. This one had the cabinet which was pretty much roached but the base was in great shape, only a little rust.

I forgot to take pictures of the before but this is the base after cleaned and painted black.

These bases are often topped with wood to create a table top.I have also seen old wagons and crates placed on top.We wanted to add a little storage so we used a drawer from a previous dresser.

A new piece of wood was added and hinged to open creating room for storage.
This is just propped for the photo,

A little cleaning to the drawer and light stain then poly give it a finished look.

These bases make a great table project. So many different things can be used for the top.

Can't wait to get back to the flea markets this Spring.

Thanks for stopping by,

Sewing Table Makeover

In my last post I shared a French Garden Sign that was made from the top of a sewing table.

This is what I did with the table base. Painted and a new top added it is now a small desk or table.

We bought this one at a flea market recently. You always see them and usually for a good price.

The top removed and painted.

A new piece of wood was attached to create the new table/desk top.

The back of the table had a thin piece of veneer that I just took off and replaced it with a piece of metal.

I like how it gives the table a new industrial look.

The top was completely sanded down then stained and poly applied. 

A little distressing on the drawers and legs gives it a finished look.

Super cute table that now has a new life.

It is the perfect size for a small desk or foyer, side table. 

Thanks for stopping by,
