Painted Vintage Sewing Machine Desk

Completely stripped, painted, and refinished vintage sewing machine table

Here’s where this table started:

It was in pretty rough shape, lots of deep gouges and scratches, so I ultimately decided to paint it, rather than refinish. I removed the machine and all hardware, filled in any gouges, sanded the remaining finish, and started fresh with Kilz & a basecoat

Then to plan, tape out the pattern, and start adding color:

I also decided to paint the hardware to stand out against the background, outlined the shapes, and added some shading to give it a little depth:

Now it’s a completely unique piece that reflects the owner’s personality.
