Advice for what to do with my Singer Sewing Table...
I found a GORGEOUS singer sewing table that I'm dying to bring some life back into, but I'm terribly afraid of ruining the original charm and character. Here's the major issues...
#1 The metal base. I'd like to get it back to "clean". However I don't want to paint it. I'm hoping once I clean away some of the grime and muck that the original paint will mostly be intact. Any mild cleanser suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
#2 The wood. I'm torn between just cleaning it up or refinishing the entire surface. Another issue is tha some of the veneer on the top is chipped. Has anyone restored or completely refinsihed a similiar piece?
#3 Lastly, the sewing machine itself. Should I clean it up for display, or leave it in this lovely state?
Looking forward to hearing some great tips!
