Singer Sewing Table



Since winter refuses to leave this year, we have been spending time indoors instead of out.  One of my finds from this past winter was a Singer sewing machine base I found at an estate sale for $35.  It’s missing the treadle peddle and I’m hoping to find one soon, but in the meantime, my handy husband and I made this table using up our last scraps of barn wood, some extra boards, and our singer parts.  We really do need to find the time to pick up more barn wood.  We have used it in so many different ways.

Right now we have it down in the basement, but I may decide to move it upstairs someday soon.  I think it would make a darling table behind the sofa.

Here’s where we used the barn wood scraps along the base.  They help to stabilize the table and with some felt circle on the bottom, protect the floor from scratches.

I’ve always loved the racing stripes on furniture, and decided to add some to this table to add some more character to the piece.  I choose red to match the red in the red in the barn wood.
We are very happy with the way it turned out and it was a really easy project to make.
Thanks for stopping by!
Let’s all think Spring, and then think it a little harder!

  1. I have a very similar table that I found at a yard sale years ago, I use it in my living room as a end table and it works very well...love the stripes that you painted on yours...
