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!
