Tackle It Tuesday: Sewing Table Makeover

Tuesday, December 15, 2009
My mom gave me this sewing accessories table about 15 years ago. I don't know. Maybe it was actually about 20 years ago. I just know that I've had it for what seems like forever. Other than putting new drawer pulls on it years ago, I've left it untouched. Recently, I've been waking each morning and looking at it unsatisfied. It's been sitting in a corner of the master bedroom underutilized and certainly under appreciated. It needed a face lift and a new home, but I was committed to not spending more than $20 to get this done.

Oh, boy! Did I ever come in under budget. I used 1/2 can of spray paint that was in my garage. I did have to buy an additional can at $4.00. I settled on drawer pulls. These weren't my first choice, but you know how you just want to buy anything so that you can finish the project? Well, that's what I was feeling the day I went shopping for the drawer pulls. Plus, it was freezing outside and I was in Lowe's. It was convenient, and I had absolutely no desire to shop around on a cold day.

Take a look...
I really wanted drawer pulls that look like clear crystals, but Lowe's didn't have them. I settled for this brushed silver pull which works, but for $1.98 per pull can easily be tossed when I find what I really want.
