The other day I ran to DI to drop a few items off and while I was there I thought to myself, I am going to run in and see what they have to offer because I had been wanting a table and chair for my sewing machine. Well lo and behold this is what I foundDSC_6618
It's one of those old sewing machine tables that the sewing machine flips up from inside. Isn't it awesome!? Then I found this beauty to go with. DSC_6621
Maybe not much to look now but it will when I am done. I went the fabric store to see what I could find thinking I was going to paint it a turquoise color but then I found this and loved it and decided it had to go on my chair.DSC_6636
While I was painting I noticed a little label that said DEBBY on it and I couldn't help but wonder who Debby was and the things she sewed and how old she was if she was even alive still. Oh the stories this table could tell if it could talk. After a lot of time (that I should have spent studying) I came up with thisDSC_6628 I replaced the knob, gave the new chair a nice fluffy pad to cushion my bum with the many hours I will spend sewing and I added some brown streaks here and there to give it an older look. I just used regular old ink for stamps. Is that allowed? All in all I was happy the way it turned out. I better get sewing!

Dy I hate how you can just 'whip up' things like this!! They seriously look so good. I love how they turned out! And what a DI find! Awesome. :)
