DIY Sewing Table Makeover

An inexpensive side-of-the road find gets a little upgrade.

The top needed a really good sanding to remove the damaged light oak finish.

A couple of coats of a darker stain gave the top a richer look.

I switched the wooden knobs to vintage metal handles, there's a trick to this so check it out by clicking on the bold link. 

The drawers are lined with decorative paper.

And the old cast-off table is ready for a new life 
as a sewing table!
