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 machine drawers

I've had these drawers from an old treadle sewing machine for over forty years. I love them and they make the perfect little end table. I decided it was time to paint them,( after 40 years anything could use a new paint job)

 I didn't even bother to sand it down, just painted it with my new favorite creamy yellow color.

 I love the detail on the drawer pulls.

 I like to sand the edges and the go over then with mahogany stain rather than using the gel stain.

 The details show up better with lots of distressing.

 Amazing what a little paint can do!

I think it looks so much happier now and perfect in my front room.


  1. I love sewing machine drawers but don't have any at the current time. Yours turned out so pretty and the details are awesome.

  2. Love those drawers... they remind me of a little table I had years ago, wish I would have never gotten rid of it! Theresa xoxo

  4. I LOVE this piece! Great choice on the color! Really, I like all of your furniture "fixes", but this one especially!!

  5. That is just yummy! It went from unhappy caramel to vintage lemon chiffon with fine shabby details. Just gorgeous.

  6. A great piece, and I love it painted that creamy yellow. Looks great.

  7. What a treasure! Looks lovely painted.

  8. Oooooh-this piece is just wonderful - painted or not! But I do love the creamy yellow - one of my favorite colors. Might be why my house siding is creamy yellow :)
