Vintage Sewing Machine Table Repurposed

The blogger at Full Circle Creations writes, “Two years ago my Aunt Barb (aka the Free Stuff Fairy) brought me this antique sewing machine base.  It’s been sitting in one of the grain bins, waiting for me to decide what to do with it.”

The sewing machine table was lovely on its own, but not incredibly useful.  This blogger decided that the addition of a shelf would make all the difference.  She added the shelf and refinished the wood top, then stood back and took a look at the little table.  “I thought the black was tired and old (not in a good way) looking, so I decided to paint it,” she says.  After the base of the table got a coat of fresh white, it really did look transformed.

Sewing Table Turned Party Cooler

I love this re-imagined sewing table from Courtney of Sweet C’s Designs.   How many times have you seen one of these old sewing machine tables at a thrift store or garage sale?  Courtney had a brilliant idea to turn one into a drink station.

The inspiration for this party cooler/drink station started with Courtney’s baby celebrating a first birthday.  Courtney wanted something aqua and vintage to serve as a central part of the party decor, and realized that the old sewing table her mom had given her might be perfect–with a few tweaks.  Courtney’s husband added a roasting pan underneath the top to house the ice, and a fresh coat of turquoise paint freshened it up.  It’s perfect!
