Sewing Desk: A Transformation

Awhile back, my dashing husband found this gem of a sewing desk for 10 bucks at a local garage sale and said he'd help me (and by help he really meant he'd do all the work) refurbish it.


My favorite part of the desk - well besides the built in place for my sewing machine is hands down the drawers. I love the vintage ads that line them.


Due to my husband's rather...hectic...schedule, this antique sewing desk sat in my living room for quite awhile before "we" started work on it. It was a slow going project that included a lot of sanding.


My favorite part, of course was choosing the color and painting. I decided on a light gray stain that ended up drying as a bit of a blueish gray with touches of gold.



Now it is all finished and I've loved sewing on it - it adds a lot of character to my sewing space and I am a big fan of the built in space for my sewing machine.
