My sewing table is an 8' table from the local office supply store. This gives me plenty of room for computer flatscreen, sewing, and cutting, and room for storage underneath.

Several years ago I repainted a Singer 99. I created my own water-slide decals and put them on, clear-coating over them when dry. The clear coat did not bubble or mess up. It looks fine.
