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.
How To: Repurposed Sewing Table
Dismantle Sewing Table
Someone had put in a support board for the machine. I removed that board and any hardware that was inside.
Then, I tipped the machine upside down and took some measurements of the width and depth of the “box”.
Add a Shelf
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.
Primer Several Projects at a Time
Paint Repurposed Sewing Table Black
Next, I 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.
Add A Stencil
I used my Damask harmony stencil from Cutting Edge Stencil to give the top some pizzazz.
You can also check out how I did this same pattern on a mirror.
Distress Paint and Stencil
I wanted to sand the image so that it would not be raised at all. Because 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”.
