    That is so pretty. I'm thinking that it's some sort of faux painting technique. Wondering if I could do this with the one I have that is really ugly...referring to the pink mosaic.

    Anamaria, Looks like the clear coat is gone in spots.

    I think I would like it to be faux rather than real... Seems like it would be easier to move around as well. I have a White in a faux something cabinet - looks terrible. Must have been done a while ago. I'd say if you bother to do anything do a nice job.

    The 99K came in a blonde cabinet, that had been stained, but the stain is coming off in areas, other than that issue the cabinet is in nice condition. You can see in the pictures, that the stain will just peel off in areas, and other areas the stain has gone into the wood. In those areas it seems like there is no finish?? I don't know if that makes sense?

    grumble grumble complain grumble some more - couldn't make it stick.... don't know how to resize that one - it was a sewing machine cabinet painted purple and they made it into a little kitchen. Pretty cute actually. Did you see the one turned upside down, put a pillow in it and made it into a doggie bed?

    There are just so many intersting ideas that can be applied to redoing a sewing cabinet.

    Here is a picture of part of the cabinet top. I picked it up in my car, so I took it apart to bring it home, and didn't put it back together. I will do that tomorrow and take a picture.

    Hi Charlee, good to see you here on the board, I hope you are feeling better!! I remember seeing the patchwork design, but I don't remember seeing the Singer lettering. I like it very nice!

    I was told by an OSMG that the alligatoring is from it being outside and freezing. Outside can mean in an unheated shed. Freezing means downright freaking cold, not just the somewhat below freezing that we often think about though.
