When we were in Wichita for the fourth of July, I picked up an old treddle sewing machine. It was missing the sewing machine and two drawers. The top was pretty well shot as well.
I took the top off and the drawers. Once all the wood was removed I took the stand to the car wash and cleaned it up. Once washed it look pretty good. I plan on painting the stand black with some white highlights.
I cut a new top and got the drawers re-attached. I put it back together to see how it would look. Now I need to put trim on the top and then stain.
I will keep you posted with updates.
