I love to sew. Until recently my sewing table was the kitchen table. I actually love the space that the kitchen table offers. The problem is that my stuff gets in the way when it's time for dinner. Back when we only had two kids, it wasn't a big deal. I would just shove all my stuff to the one end and we'd eat at the other end of our large table. But now we need all the room for eating. So I have to clean up my mess by dinner time, even if I'm not done.
Enter this little table. I grabbed this up several years ago when a neighbor was getting rid of it. We've had it in our bedroom with an old computer on it that we never used. I decided that it was the perfect table for my sewing machine.
It was white, and other than a few nail polish spills, there was nothing wrong with it. My new craft room/guest room/storage room is painted green and the shelves I've hung are cream. It was time for some color.
I used Rustoleum Painter's Touch French Lilac in Satin.
I did two coats.
The next day I took some sand paper and distressed it. I love the white popping through.
The drawer is perfect for holding all my extra thread and other sewing accessories.
And it hides all the mismatched colored containers.
I'm so in love with this color against the green walls. It's so pretty.
What do you think? I know lilac is not really an "in" color. But in this room that is for the most part "mine" I wanted to use colors that I really like and not trendy "in" colors.
Linking up to these parties.
