Old Sewing Machine Table turned Coat Rack

sewing maching front coat hookThis coat rack started out as a vintage sewing machine table. The sewing machine table was in my booth for a while and never sold. I never really liked that thing anyway, so I brought it home and took it apart because it had good legs. 😉

After removing the legs, I unscrewed the hinges that held the drop down drawer. Once the drawer was off, all that was left was the “pretty” front frame.

It sold the first month I had it back in the booth. Now I’m working on a project using the sewing table legs. Stayed tuned…

Halloween Burlap Pillow Tutorial

Here’s a quick and easy Halloween burlap pillow tutorial.  My friend, Janet, made these cute pillows for her front porch.  All you need is burlap, a sharp marker and a sewing machine.  (Although you can always hand stitch them if you don’t have a sewing machine.)  Enjoy!!
