Transform an old sewing table into a drink/snack station


  • I was on Pinterest and came across a photo that caught my attention. turned an old sewing machine into a server station using spray paint. I decided to use chalk paint to transform this old sewing table. I found this piece at a local thrift store.
  • First, I cleaned the piece with TSP (check out the video on how to clean your furniture before painting ) It was quite dirty and who knows where and how long this piece was sitting around collecting dirt. Here is a before picture…..


  • Next, I used Annie Sloan chalk paint and mixed Old white with Provence and it created a beautiful blue. (1 cup Provence & 3/4 cup old white)


  • Then, I painted two coats and let dry in between. I put a clear wax to seal the paint.
  • I should of done this step earlier but when everything was dry I took out all the parts inside that are not necessary out.

  • I found this galvanized bucket at Michael’s craft store. It was the perfect size for the job. I ended up painting the hardware originally on the piece.


  • Now it was time to add a shelf. This part I had to ask for help. A friend helped cut to size a piece of wood I had laying around and sealed it with Shellac.image
  • Then I wanted to add some leftover trim for some flair. I cut to size the trim and used clamps to hold trim in place. I used gorilla glue to hold the trim in place.image
