This is one of my favorite pieces of furniture in my house. I made it out of an old sewing machine table, purchased at the DI for $6.00. I did this project over five years ago, so I'm sorry that I didn't have pictures for the whole process. I found this picture on the internet to give you an idea of the before.
The one I bought didn't have the sewing machine in it.
So, first purchase your sewing table.
Then remove the old sewing machine, unless you can't see it.
Next, paint it the color you'd like, and sand the edges. I didn't prime this time because I wanted it to chip away and look more worn over time. I used a semi-gloss Charcoal paint.
Then, Drill holes at the bottom of the legs and screw in wheels. These wheels lock so that the table can stand still, and unlock for a moveable work surface ( I took them off of an old file cabinet I had lying around. ).
Finally, attach bathroom hardware. I bought the cheap Mainstay set at Walmart. It came with knobs, hooks, and a towel bar.
Here is the final product!
Here is one of my favorite things about the table. It has a secret compartment on top, where I store all of the sharp knifes in my house. Isn't it FAB?
If you don't have enough counter space in your kitchen, think twice before throwing out an old table or dresser. It might make the PERFECT kitchen Island!
