Remember my Favorite Find Monday? It’s a vintage Martha Washington sewing table. Well, I decided to give it a go with a color that I happen to love on this little piece – pale yellow.
Redone in General Finishes Buttermilk Yellow, it now has true cottage charm…
After a few coats of the pale yellow, I applied their Van Dyke Brown glaze over the body. I then took their Winter White glaze and glazed over the brown/yellow combo.
The drawers are slightly more yellow because I only added the white glaze on these, making them a brighter yellow that pop out a bit in color. The pearly white, ceramic pulls also add cottage charm.
It’s a neat little table. The top opens on it’s sides and the legs are very sweet. My daughter said it would be great in a bathroom to put rolls of toilet paper in – she’s right!
Very pretty and cheerful! Loving it!
I love the color! Great job, as always 🙂
Sooo pretty! I love the color!
Thank you for the brilliant idea for toilet paper! I have this exact sewing cabinet that grandma kept her knitting in. I painted mine white. It will be great in my powder room.
Hi Kellie – so funny! I told my daughter and she is very happy to have given a design tip! Cheers, Suzanne
So cute!! Thank you for sharing at redouxinteriors and the new Handmade Hangout! Sharing tomorrow afternoon at the party when it opens 🙂
Do you still have the original drawer pulls? I need one. 🙂
Me too, I need one, did she ever answer you?
Hi Debbie – no I am sorry I don’t have them any longer. I believe I used them on the interior of an old secretary desk. You may want to try Ebay. There are a lot of sellers with vintage hardware on there. Thanks!
