I spent a whole day putting together a sewing table. As it started to take shape, I realized just how drab it really was. I had a grandma’s sewing table. Don’t get me wrong: grandmas are dope, but their sense of decor usually isn’t. I’ll be damned if I don’t personalize everything I own some way or another, so I decided to spruce it up with some craft paint.
The handles were easy enough. Instead of leaving them a dull black, I applied a few coats of green craft paint and sealed it with matte varnish to keep it from chipping.
For the panels: After bordering the areas I wanted to paint with masking tape, I laid down a base coat of white acrylic and later two coats of different shades of green paint in an alternating pattern. To top it off, I applied a coat of matte varnish.
Almost done! Doesn’t it look better already? I’m thinking of adding polka dots in different shades of green in that boring space above the painted panels…
