So as a late birthday present my hubby helped me turn a upper cabinet i got up freecycle in to a sewing table for me because using a tv tray to sew on sucks.. we cut off one of the bottom ends to make it level added in a few screws to stabilize it and screwed on a recycled piece of ply wood to the top , it was a hand made pine cabinet , i wish i had before pics of it . over 3 days i added 4 coats of latex white house paint which took forever to dry in virginia humidity in july , once dry i set to work painting it , the top had an antique sewing machine in the middle where my machine sits a spool of thread unwound and strewn across the top ,buttons "sewn" on all over the top along with a shiny silver needle and scissors , it has spent thread spools for door pulls and even has buttons on the doors even has stitches all around the edges of it.. i massively love it and best of all its 8 feet long and almost 3 feet wide, sooo plenty of room , with  the doors i have now got all my stuff organized , well not all of it but some lol. so  heres the piece de resistance.

Top (its hard to get pics of the top when  ur short)


needle and scissors


 antique sewing machine


button and stitch detail on doors



the knot so the Stitches dont come out lol


button detail


and the pink spool of thread which i think looks very realistic in person


and so ya see what i used to sew on go ahead and laugh...  least it was portable lol


sorry for the mass of pics i actually have more but there hiding will add full action shots when i find them
c and c welcome
