When Old Is Made New Again

Found this old desk at Goods in Remission Invermay and knew that it had to become my new sewing table, at the moment whenever the urge to sew strikes I need to transport all items to the dining room table which obviously is not very practical or enjoyable!

It did have some bookends built in on the top but I removed those, sanded down the lovely pine to remove stickers and grafiti, previous owner was obviously a student. Stained it a nice rich maple colour and added a cutting board. This serves two purposes, covers the marks left by the bookends which no amount of sanding would remove and also makes it an all purpose craft table as well as a sewing table.

Very happy little camper I am. Stay tuned there is an old vintage chair being made over to match. Till next time happy knitting and of course sewing!

A very good find indeed and a good job restoring it.

We have told DD, who has been married for two years, that it's time to move out so I can move my sewing machine form the dining room to her bedroom!
