Sewing Table

I never get great deals but maybe my luck is changing. I found this table at an old antique barn. Its awesome, a little scary but awesome. Anyway..... I had my eye on this table for some time and it was priced at $25. I would have paid that, but I wanted to see if I could get it for any cheaper. Well.....Clint asked the nice man what he would sell it for and to my amazement he said $5... yep that's right FIVE DOLLARS!!! I was so happy.

I love the built in storage.

This is the loveliness before I started work. We took off the legs and stripped the top. (that sounds a bit psychotic) It wasn't in bad shape, just needed some love.

Then I painted it Ultra Pure White by Valspar. I wanted it to look clean and crisp.

I finished it off with some rough sanding which turned out perfectly. And topped it off with a clear coat for protection.

Perfect little table that could be used in so many different places.


  1. this turned out awesome! You should be very proud of yourself-for the deal and the after! Fabulous!! have you ever tried spray painting furniture? It is way faster and I am an extremely inpatient person, so it works fabuously for me!! Great job!
