Sew No More

Well, in all honesty, I found this sewing cabinet without a sewing machine to begin with.

I had just dropped off a carload full of furniture at Thrifty Pickin's and had gotten loaded up with a few cast offs from their storage. The car was pretty full, but I couldn't resist the temptation to stop by the thrift store as I passed.

And I saw this sewing table beauty. I had been on the lookout for one, but they usually were out of my price range with sewing machine still in tact (what would I do with that once it was removed?!)

This one was priced for repurposing with no machine left for sewing.


So I squeezed it into the back of my car and began dreaming of its transformation. I posed the question on Facebook "Should it be black or brightly colored?" And I received great, but mixed feedback.

Someone wanted me to leave it wood. But honestly, this cabinet isn't all real wood. I knew it would look snazzier dressed in black paint. But I wanted this to be an outdoor drink station, so I felt it should be brightly colored for your patio. I added that pop on the inside and I love it!




I finished the painting, waxing, and poly

The Good, The Bad, and The Beautiful!

I have some good news and some bad news.

I'm just really happy with this first attempt at repurposing old dressers. (Which is good because I have two more lined up on commission...how do I get myself into these things?!)

The bad news is
