Welcome Spring

After a long winter I'm so excited for spring to finally really be here. I think I'm going to take a little break from blogging and really enjoy the season. I have so many projects that I'm really looking forward to working on. Hope you all have a wonderful Spring time!

Sewing table

My friend brought this sewing machine cabinet to re-do for her daughter for Christmas. It had belonged to her Grandmother. 
It was the blonde wood with a lacquer finish.
It was quite the process!

 I sanded and sanded and then sanded some more. Then I put primer on it and once it was dry then I rubbed it down with a lint free rag to smooth out any bumps. Then I painted it a soft cream color, sanded the edges and stained them with mahogany stain removing any excess with a little paint thinner.

I added amber glass knobs that really added a little sparkle to the cabinet.

I think it turned out really sweet.

  1. Very cute! I love the amber knobs against the creamy paint! You did a great job!

  2. Love it! You did a great job. I have been wondering where you were. . . Glad to see you are back blogging and showing your projects. Keep doing it and keep moving forward. Hope this new year is one of your best. I hope it is mine too!


I love hearing your thoughts. It helps keep my imagination flowing. Thank you!!
