I have always loved this antique sewing table that belonged to my mama. She gave it to me several years ago and I knew one day I would do something with it. As you can see, it was a bright cherry red; and before that, a solid black. I recently googled some pictures of this table in its original state. Darren and I took a few nights to restore the table and I must say, we love it!
As you can see, we started to cover the red with High Heat Rust-Oleum BBQ black spray paint. The matte black finish is what we wanted … and that is exactly what we got.
We used an electric sander to work through the layers of paint. Eventually, we discovered the original wood. While the sides were a bit tricky to sand, we somehow managed to sand away most of the paint.
And here you go - the finished product!
I hosted a little Valentine's party for some of my mommy friends and used the table in the entry way for decorations.
The party turned out really cute! Here are a few pictures from the Baby Cupid Valentine's Party…
