Sewing Machine Base Becomes a Beauty
Cheap find at an auction; $4. It was covered in rust, dust, spider webs, etc. I think it had been in a barn for a long time.
Scrubbing (brillo pads are the best) outdoors with a hose nearby to wash away the icky stuff. I used a wire brush also.
A good rust preventative spray paint is the best.
Next, I visited a monument business. I asked to see their remnant pieces of marble. With measurements in hand, we found this perfect (and obscenely heavy) white marble slab, a perfect compliment to the black base.
