A rusty old sewing table gets new life!

I dug this metal sewing table out of an attic estate sale a few weeks ago. I really liked the bones of it so I decided to take it upon myself to restore it to its former glory. Well, it is missing a side leaf so I’ll say almost back to its former glory, lol. I picked a nice retro green color and a primer and got to sanding the whole thing down. Sanding took me a few hours because I wanted to make sure I got all the rust off and it was nice and smooth. A few days later I took on the task of primer painting and today I just finished the final coat of paint! All and all it did not take me long and spray painting is easy enough with the Valspar paint, they have the easy spray bottles. 2 cans of primer paint and 2 cans of the finish coat paint and a few pieces of sandpaper (I used 100 grit) was all it took. Check out my pictures below!

  4. Years ago I had a table like this – but not for sewing (too much vibration). Mine was a typewriter stand. Before that, they were for adding machines, etc. Good job you did!
