Hello, lovelies!! I’m back today with piece number two of my newest haul from the Storage Room Haul of Shame!
When my old neighbor put her house on the market, she was selling several pieces of furniture. I bought this dresser from her that I often use for staging. She also had a sewing machine table that she was selling. I passed on it when I bought the dresser because I already had two in my stash at the time, but I told her that if she still had it before moving and just wanted to unload it, give me a call.
And that’s how I ended up with this piece:
I’ve been waiting for inspiration to strike for almost two years now!
Finally, it has a whole new look!
I’ve included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love.
I used it with white paint on the first two pieces, but it works great paired with navy also.
This color is In the Navy from Dixie Belle.
It gave great coverage with one coat, but I gave it two. ( Find those furniture wheels HERE!)
Since the background of the door needed to be white for the transfer, I decided to prime it with BOSS in white to prevent bleed-through first…
This is after two coats. I let it dry overnight and then decided that I didn’t even need to paint! I put the transfer right over the top of the BOSS:
Pouring some in a small bowl to dip the sponge in helps to give a nice even coat, and you can rinse and reuse the sponge over and over again!
(Those scratch marks across the roses are part of the transfer.)
The rest of the table got a light sanding with 220 grit sandpaper. The sandpaper will make it look like this:
That’s scary looking but totally normal! When you seal it, it will go back to a beautiful navy blue. I used Dixie Belle’s clear wax this time to seal because I love the soft buttery look and feel of a waxed piece and I wanted that for this table.
Finally, I spray painted the original pull with Rustoleum in Satin White.
I wanted it to be there, but not stand out, and let the pretty pattern be the focus.
There are so many of these sewing tables out there, and although not as many people are taking an interest in sewing these days, these tables make great side tables!
This one will be heading to the shop!
And that is the second piece I’ve been hanging onto for forever that is finally done! (Insert awkward happy dancing!!)
If you missed what I did with that small table on Tuesday, you can see that HERE!
I’ll meet ya’ll back here on Tuesday to see what I did with this bench:
UPDATE: See how this bench looks now HERE!
Have a fantastic weekend!
