side table

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.
