I painted my Grandma’s sewing machine cabinet, shhhh.I’m afraid when Grandma sets her eyes on the machine she is going to kill me for changing the color.
Maybe I’ll just be visiting her instead of inviting her over.Here is a little tutorial if you are interested.
Sanded the whole piece with medium grit sandpaper.
I then primed it using a oil based primer. There were lots of little grooves so I used
Next I took the sanding sponge and lightly buffed making the surface smooth.
I then used a foam roller and painted on two coats, allowing 24 hours drying time in between each coat.
I used Sherwin Williams Summer White. (same as kitchen cabinets)
I then finished it with a stain using a dry brush and
lightly brushing over the entire piece.
Wiped most of it off with a damp towel
Stopped when I achieved my desired look.
Lined the drawers
Tried to make a sewing machine cover with leftover fabric
Added some acces
and kept the original hardware
I’m much happier with the the finished look.
Although not perfect, it’s good enough for me.
So I think I’ve given away what this secret corner is going to be…..

I can’t wait to add the finishing touches and show you!
