    "was ugly, now fantastic" ebay listing

    don't know if this machine belongs to anyone on the board.

    Joe, did you ever go ahead and 'camo' paint a machine?

    Nice paint job if you're into camo, I am partial to that old green myself. Wish I had the $ to invest; looks like a charm!

    Nope I haven't done one yet. I think I'd do it differently than that one too.

    Well some body wants it desperately by the looks of the bids on it. What a sad case and the paint job is bad. It looks like spray can and finger paint. Bleh!
    I really like green machines and it makes me sad what happened to this one.

    If you look at the plate behind the reverse handle you can see the original green color. It looks like it might have been a nice machine too. Again sad.

    I kind of agree. I think I would have titled it 'was ugly, still ugly'.

    The seller asks in the description for feedback on the paint job....so I gave them one. My 4 yr old could do a better job. That is one seriously awful attempt at painting. It was a beautiful mint green before he destroyed it. I wouldn't pay 5.00 for it in that condition because I guarantee you that he didn't properly cover everything and there will be paint and such mucking it up internally.

    I think that is about the worse thing I have seen in painting a sewing machine. I would strip that off it was me. I wonder what ever made them think that would be pretty. Maybe if the paint job was better it would look ok. I think Joe would do a better job. Nothing wrong with Camo but that isn't even close, lol....ugly!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Life is SEW great!!!!!!
