Sewing Cabinet From an Old Desk


We bought an old desk at a garage sale for $10.00 and my husband refinished it to make me a much needed sewing cabinet. We mostly used what we had at hand, including the white paint and silver spray for the drawer handles.

The drawers are dovetailed without the metal sliders to help the drawers slide in and out.

The paint remover didn't work so my husband used his electric sander.

I love sewing on my new (to me) cabinet!
