Repurposed Vintage Sewing Machine Cabinet for StorageNovember 8th, 2012 in member junk
This vintage sewing machine cabinet had so much fine detail in the woodwork, I couldn't wait to start this transformation. I gutted all the bad interior parts and built a shelf inside the bottom behind the doors and added some modified trim to edge the front lip. In the hole that the sewing machine used to pop up from, I built a storage box using a vintage aluminum catering basin and lined the hole with vintage square yardstick pieces. I gave the whole piece a couple of different layers of two chalk paint colors and then went to town with the wet sanding/distressing.
