    Newest Sewing Table re-do

    Next in line is this one. Ideas for this table?

    But, I finished this one up and I'm happy(ish) with the results. It was in very poor condition to start with, missing chunks of veneer and was antiqued with some horrible paint that had drips everywhere and was a nightmare to get off. The finish isn't as smooth as I'd like but at least now it can look in the mirror without being embarrassed. A 15 clone came out of it, but I think it's a Singer table.

    Here are the before and after pics.

    Candace,

    Good job!!!!
    The difference is a literal miracle.

    My monitor makes the color look to be a blackish / dark silver grey. Is that right or is my monitor off?

    And what kind of paint did you use?

    Yes, it's a darker grey metallic. It's a Home Depot Martha Stewart, specialty paint. Kind of pricey for a small amount. I wasn't too crazy about the coverage, so it needled lots of coats, even using a primer. But, it's soap and water clean up which was very nice and it didn't stink. I would use it again.

    Hi Candace,
    Good job! It looks great. That paint really gives it a "cast iron" look. Keep up the good work.

    It looks very nice Candace. I love gun metal black.

    Wow what a makeover!!! Absolutely love it!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    That is such a transformation! Any machine would be proud to sit there.
