Antique Sewing Machine Makeover

I have been keeping a look out for an old sewing machine base and I was lucky enough to happen upon one for $45! These babies usually go for over $100!

This one needed a good cleaning. After wiping it down though, it still looked dull and rusty. I found a product called Rust-oleum Rust Reformer. It covers metal with a black protective covering that stops rust and allows you to paint over it. I liked the way it looked straight out of the spray can. The mat finish was perfect.

I did cover the Singer logo and the sides with blue tape. They still had the original gold tone I wanted to maintain.

The top was made from wood I had stashed. I used Dark Walnut to stain it.

The handles on the sides were a 50% off buy from Hobby Lobby. They have the best knobs and handles!!!

This beauty is not going to make it to my booth. I’m keeping this one! 🙂

But I will be keeping my eyes open for another sewing machine base! Or two!
