Sewing TableSaturday, August 9, 2014
Once upon a time I took sewing classes...I actually come from a family of bridal seamstresses. Although you would never guess any of that, seeing as I don't even remember how to properly string the thread through a sewing machine. Low (to non-existent) sewing level aside, I knew that this sewing table had to be my next DIY project.
I picked up this beaut from my hometown Goodwill for $2.99!
All this table needed was a little TLC and paint.
Before I could paint, I sanded the table. Good ol' sandpaper works just fine too if you don't have a sander at your disposal. (And yes, I do wear pearls while sanding!) I applied a few coats of white semi-gloss paint and presto, the table looked as good as new.
But no sewing table is complete without a sewing machine. Lucky for me, I also found a gently used machine at the Goodwill for $9.99.
The total cost of this DIY project: $23.98
Sewing table: $2.99
Sewing machine: $9.99
Sand paper: $3.00
Now all that's left to do is enroll in another sewing class and ACTUALLY learn how to sew.
