Vintage Typewriter Table Makeover

I love the functionality and little "edge" that industrial style adds to a room, so I rarely pass up a good find. I discovered this vintage typewriter table at a flea market and couldn't resist the opportunity to give it a new life.
This beauty required some scrubbing with a wire brush to remove the rusty spots.
A couple of coats of Rustoleum's Weathered Steel spray paint gave it a new surface while maintaining an vintage, weathered look.
For fun, I added some typography with vinyl letters in my favorite aqua. This table will live out the rest of her days as my sewing maching cart.
