Makeover My Sentimental Junk – My Maw Maw’s Sewing Cabinet

Brandi & Sean from The Junque Market used Vanilla Frosting, Pocket Watch metallic cream, and Image Transfer Medium to completely transform this sewing table from plain to fabulous!

Makeover time! Have you ever had a piece of furniture that has been held on to in your family, even though it’s considered a piece of junk to outsiders? And its only value to you is purely sentimental? Otherwise, that hunk of ugly junk would have been donated, or in the trash heap, long ago?

I admit, we have a couple of those in our collection. One of those pieces is a sewing machine cabinet that belonged to my late great-grandmother.

Country Chic Paint to the Rescue!

Then, about a month ago, we got some Country Chic Paint and supplies to try out. Now was the time to start a new makeover project!

We had heard so much about this awesome paint and we were uber excited to try it! So, of course, the sewing machine cabinet came to mind!

At first, I was a little reluctant to even consider marring her gracefully aged skin. However, I knew that in the long run, I would only be beautifying her and increasing her longevity.

Makeover Time!

After prepping and sanding her top for painting, she was ready for a new attitude. She wants to get wild and funky in her old age!

We chose Country Chic Paint’s All-in-One Decor Paint in Vanilla Frosting as the sewing cabinet’s new color. She took two coats and already looked like new!

This lady wants a makeover that will get noticed though! She’s not just vanilla frosting! So, we gave her worn top a new coat of gorgeous glam with Country Chic Paint’s Metallic Accent Cream in Pocket Watch. We loved this cream and cannot wait to use it again! It went on so beautiful and smooth.

That’s Not All!

After all that pampering, she was still begging for a little more pizzazz. We used County Chic Paint’s Image Transfer Medium to decoupage a floral and striped print onto her front side. Then, to top that off, we added some snazzy green knobs to replace her broken handle. Now, she was rockin’!

This beauty, in all her newfound glory, will surely grace our home for many years to come!
