Seeing Red...

I found this vintage sewing table at the thrift store along with... a vintage sewing machine inside!! $25!!! Seriously!! And the sewing machine works great!! But I decided not to use it for my craft room. I thought it was the perfect size for an empty, small space behind our couch in the great room, in between the great room and the kitchen/dining room. And since my accent color in there is red, the paint color I chose was...
SURPRISE! Red!!

I glazed and antiqued it to give it a little more personality! I also put together a little floral arrangement to put on top! I kept the original hardware, because I loved it!! I love the uniquness of vintage hardware.

One more down, and a bunch more coming!! I'm loving how my house is coming together now! And I have a lot more ideas to try out!! So keep checking back!

I love the red! I also have an old table/sewing machine I want to re-do, not sure what color yet. Check out my red desk I did a while ago.
