Desk Overhaul

My in-laws graciously gave me my MILs old sewing desk to use for all the sewing I've started to do recently... it was one of those great ones from the 70s that had the sewing machine built-in. So... long story short, I ended up overhauling it! The fabric badly needed to be changed, if for nothing other than the musty smell, and the piece just needed some love and updating. I took out the old sewing machine, painted it, and replaced the padding as well (anyone want an old sewing machine!?).

Here are the before and after pictures! I am REALLY excited with how it turned out!

If any of you are looking for a chuckle... check out the chairs legs... haha! Just adds to the character, right?

I love your sewing table! My mom had one just like it when I was a kid. I would sit in front of the big record player/stereo and listen to Family Life Radio while watching my mom sew at her table.
