My sewing room is in my basement and it's a crazy-a** mixture of stuff. I have my grandmother's sewing cabinet from the '40s (which I hope to retrofit to my sewing machine), my mother's vintage china cupboard from the '60s, a Joann cutting table, an executive desk I got when my office moved and gave away furniture, and a mixture of little tables and filing cabinets.
My problem is how to combine all these different elements into one look. I love the shabby chic/vintage look, so the older items aren't a problem. How do I incorporate the newer/laminate stuff into the mix? I saw some super cute filing cabinet makeovers on Pinterest, but the executive desk is dark and very plain (it also weighs a ton so no chance of moving it out of the basement).
