Before | After: Computer Table


We purchased a 1926 Singer 66 sewing machine last year at Goodwill for $9.99. Sadly, we think it's in very poor condition, and we're considering using it for parts for another 66. The veneer on the table was in horrid shape as well. I needed a new computer table, so it seemed as though this was the perfect solution. We pulled the top off, stripped the problem veneer, painted it, and added a new top made from scrap MDF. { All images click through to larger sizes. }

The neglected 66 that we'll attempt to restore down the road, or used for parts for another 66.


After a light sanding, we spray painted the base with Valspar's Black Satin paint. Michael then cut the scrap MDF top and drilled the hole for the table grommet for the cords, or cord with my new computer.


Coming up tomorrow are photos of my new studio!
