I have been working on a side table for a while. I was having no luck with the base. I knew I wanted it to be metal but everything I came across was either too big, bulky or too tall. Well, my luck change when I found this old sewing machine base.
I like the rusty look but it was flaking too much so I applied a clear coating that helps control further rust.
The final product after some tweaking to attach the base to the top. I couldn’t be happier with the result.
So, again I had an excuse to make a new dress. This particular one I love. I saw this fabric two years ago and fell in love with the texture and color; since I didn’t know what to do with it I decided to buy only 2 yards. It became a challenge to make this dress. I had to be very careful, any mistake and I was done. So I crossed my fingers, carefully draped the pattern and cut. It worked out for the best!
This is how it looks on me. Oh yes! I added pockets
Remember the walls I was plastering?, well I have been painting them and trimming the door frames and wall openings; so I ended up with a few leftover pieces of wood frame from that project. It occurred to me that I could use those pieces to frame a couple of mirrors, so I did.
I decided to give them a bit up old finish look to go with the other pieces I will put in the room.
I took these photos with my phone, I am sorry for the poor quality. Once the room is put together I will have better ones. Enjoy!
