Lovely gray sewing machine table

Oh this little sewing machine table - she was another garbage rescue. This time I was at my parents house, nearly 3 hours away. She was sitting out for the garbage at the neighbor's house - like a fallen, French provincial beauty. Look at her now:

I've never used the sewing machine in this, but I think it needs to stay in there to give a little bit of weight to the table.

I don't have pictures of her in the white and gold French provincial finish with the yellowing varnish because she has been around almost 10 years. However, I did go through a decorative paint finish. This is how the first renovation looked:

This paint color is from Rustoleum and is Stone Gray. I lightly sanded the finished because I splattered some paint which create texture on this. Also, the paint had chipped in a couple of spots. I am really pleased with how it turned out. I think this picture provides a little more true to life color.

One more look at this:
She is going to go into my dining room once my kitchen reno is finished and I can clear out the dining room.

Happy "junking"!

  1. I like her latest makeover. I've made over makeovers many times. She has great lines, and the new finish works well.

  2. Thanks, Rosemary! I like her in the much simpler paint treatment.

  3. I can't believe someone was going to just throw that out! Great job!

    1. Part of me thinks it was because it was in that French Provential style that seemed to be so prevalent in the 70s! I know my sister and I had the full suite of that kind of bedroom furniture back in the day :)
