Grab yourself a cup of coffee or a Coke, cause my tutorial on this repurposed sewing table is going to be a long post!
It had been 19.00, but then they discounted it to 10.24.
You can see that this picture was taken last fall when the leaves were on the ground.
Someone had put in a support board for the machine. I removed that board and any hardware that was inside.
I tipped the machine upside down and took some measurements of the width and depth of the “box”.
I cut a board that I had left over from Modern Glass Shelf. The shelves of that project were very heavy and they came packaged in plywood. I used my combination square to measure the position of the shelf.

I used my Kreg Jig to make pocket holes to hold the shelf in place.
Here is the shelf installed.
I then used my sprayer to paint it black when I did the the signs.
I had sanded the finish off the top so it had a smooth surface after being painted.
I used my Damask harmony stencil from Cutting Edge Stencil to give the top some pizzazz.
Because the stencil is repetitive, I taped off the parts that are used as “registration” marks. After taping over those parts, I was left with one complete damask pattern. You can also check out how I did this same pattern on a mirror.
I wanted to sand the image so that it would not be raised at all. I wanted it to appear that it was part of the original design. I sanded the black to distress it.
This side table would be great for a laptop.
The laptop could be stored neatly inside.
This sweet little repurposed sewing cabinet into a side table has already found a new home!

For now I’m finished with it. Jamie may use it in her booth as is. If she doesn’t then I will list it on Craig’s List and “build to suit”.
