A Before and After: Sewing Table

If you frequent thrift stores then you know these sewing tables are a dime a dozen.  Some have the sewing machines still inside and others are empty.  Well I found this one at Goodwill and it was in pretty great condition.  I thought I would snazz it up a bit with some gray legs.  I love the color combo of the wood tones with gray.  Remember my entry table I did a while back has the same look.

This is such a simple task.  I just taped off the sections I didn't want painted and covered the big spaces with brown paper bags then sprayed the rest.  I didn't prime because I knew I wanted to distress it. 

 Here's the super simple after.

I've added this to my Class and Trash space and will be sale for $40 
if anyone is interested, give them a call or visit!


I've been kind of in a re-do rut.  Got sick of the paint fumes and all the mess.  As the school year winds down and I'm home all day with my lovelies I'm sure my furniture transformations will continue to be few and far between as we choose pool time over project time.  I hope you'll come back and check in every once in a while though...I will keep posting fun finds etc. and hopefully a redo every now and again!

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!


  1. i love that color combo- so elegant! and i'll still be here. ;)
