We recently became nominees for the Leibster Award! Our blog is one of eleven to be chosen. Reeves from The Weathered Door nominated us. She's a very young and talented blogger so we're honored that she would include us in the bunch!
With nice weather here I have a hard time finding time to blog because I am constantly doing things outdoors. I don't know if anyone else is like that but being indoors is really hard for me this time of year! Maybe with the hotter weather of summer I won't have that problem.
Today I want to show you an old sewing table that I redid a while back. I bought it without the sewing machine in it, thinking to turn it into a desk. It was a little in rough shape, but it was well made. Here's the before.
I have wanted to do a piece with a stained top for a while and when I got this desk thought it would be the perfect candidate for it.
At first I didn't know if I should re-do it, but the longer it sat in my basement the more I liked it.
I love that it has a little surprise when you open it! I love chalkboard so I thought this would be a fun addition to it.
I added a board where the sewing machine was to make a storage for the desk, because without the sewing machine there was a big hole.
The table didn't come with a chair, so I started looking around for something that would go with it .I found an old chair that needed to be repaired and cleaning up. It fit the price range I had in mind, so I got it. I also gave it a coat of the same stain I used for the top of the desk.
This is after some sanding, I forgot about pictures!
I really like how it turned out! Hope you're inspired to do something too!
