Pieces and Parts

If you saw the custom table we built for the playroom then you may have been wondering what I did with the rest of the original sewing machine table… I only had the wooden cabinet for one of the bases, the other base had no cabinet when I bought it. We took the cabinet apart and I now have 2 projects I am working on using the parts of the cabinet. This is one of them…

This is what the original Singer sewing machine table looked like…


This is the tilt out drawer that was part of the original sewing cabinet…

BEFORE (sort of…)

I thought (among other things) that it would make a great vanity makeup holder!


I painted it with another new (to me) CeCe Caldwell’s paint… “Destin Gulf Green”. It looked very similar to Provence (ASCP) before I waxed it… but after the wax the green really showed through.


Look at the variations in the paint color, I’m pretty sure it’s the clay part of the paint that pulls this off… I waxed it with Annie Sloan Clear Wax, but once I am out of that I am going to try CeCe’s clear wax… that wax has almost no smell and what you do smell smells just like a candle!


I didn’t paint the inside of the drawer as I liked the contrast of the wood with the paint, but I did clean it really good with Orange Glow… man do I love that stuff! The size of the tray is the perfect fit along the side of a bathroom vanity top!


The little pockets would also be great for stationary, jewelry etc…


This was a super quick and easy project, but I am very happy that I am able to salvage so much of the original cabinet and repurpose it into items that are more likely to be used today…

Hope you like my little tray… what would you use it for?

Thanks for stopping by…

Until next time!
