Before and After: Five Dollar Craigslist Table


Ah Craigslist...my husband can seem to find me just about anything on there. Including this $5.00 table that I was using for shows.


 Alas, I was in need of a new sewing table and rather than buying a table for hundreds of dollars- might as well get creative and create my own retro table to match the decor of my work space. 

Using the Aqua color from Rustoleum's Painters Touch Collection, I painted the legs of the table. 
Then I lightly sanded the top of the table to make it smooth and level. Then I bought 1 1/2" yards of Retro Cherry Print Oil Cloth that I stretched, stapled then nailed to recover the top of the table. 



If you are following my Workspace Make-Over, tomorrow you will see how I reorganized my thread. By the end of the week,  the whole space will be complete.
