Make Over Sewing Table & Chair

4 Materials
3 Weeks
My Sister bought a sewing table and chair at a yard sell years ago and gave them to me to do something with. They sat in my garage for a few years until my granddaughter thought she wanted them. Turned out she didn't want them after all and brought them back where they sat for another year or so. Then something hit me
First thing is I brought them into the house to look at for a day or two
Then the chair went back to the garage to paint the pink but I thought it was way too dark
I also painted the inside of the draw but ended up repainting the pink on both
And then I painted little blue birds and dark pink flowers and transferred pink roses on the outside. By this time I was getting a lot of encouragement from friends and family so I continued on

Next was a trip to Joann's to pick out fabric to match the pink and the roses I went a little crazy with transferring those
Even covered the underside
Finished Chair corner tucks could have been neater but it was my first time so I learned some tricks after the fact
This is where the sewing table and chair live now. Hum I kind of miss them. We thought about fill the whole where the sewing machine would sit but she had better ideas
I finished the white chalk paint and added a touch of the pink and did the trim and transferred the pink roses to the table then went to Lowe's and bought 4 glass pull knobs ( only one drawer) but it seemed like it needed four at the time. I thought about putting my sewing machine in it but just left it in the kitchen and everyone wanted to know what I planned on doing with it. I didn't really have a clue until my best friend came over and said she knew a little girl that would love to have it for her homework table
