Way way back in October I started a project to make over a sewing table that came from a fabulous sewer in my family.
It's a very sturdy table that had seen better days. So it got primed and painted a dazzling apple green to bring it back to life. Then with a touch of hand painting and new knobs, she was looking fantastic!
I had some fun painting on part the flips open. The dandelion wishing flower has always been one of my favorite symbols of being free or blowing with the wind.
And I chose the "Sew Free...like no one's watching!" saying to remind me to always follow what's in my heart; not a trend or fad.
I was even able to sink my sewing machine into the table like the original design intended!
The Mister used brackets to create a platform in the table at just the right height for my sewing machine. It's brilliant and I feel like it's going to take my sewing up a few notches! I do have to take the sewing machine out if I want to close the extra table on the left, but I'm in love!
And here she is in action for the first time!
If you need me I'm sure you can find me by the beautiful green sewing table. I'm home recouping from head to toe poison ivy these next few days... ugg! I'm hoping sewing provides a nice distraction from the itching.
