I'm very excited about this. I originally posted in the "what the hell do I do with this?" board, but didn't post the results of the transformation. I got this desk from the sewing shop in town, from someone who I guess traded in their old skool sewing machine and they didn't want the cabinet anymore and left it out for the trash ... so naturally I took it home. I pondered what to do with it, and decided to keep it what it was intended to do, and keep it as a sewing desk. <p>
I sanded it down, and painted it (about 5 freakin' coats!!) white with brown trim -- I don't know if you can see in the pictures, but I started to polyurethene it on the inside, but it turned my beautiful Behr Bridal White a disgusting pee yellow!!1! I was very upset. But it will be okay - when the cabinet is closed, you can't tell too much. Also, one more thing, I'm going to put plexiglass on the inside over the big gaping hole where the orig. machine would have been, but I was so excited to share right away! Please let me know what you think!
lol, my mom said it made her want to eat chocolate. LOL:)
