Abbey from Painted Home Goods outdid herself yet again with this pretty desk makeover in Hollow Hill and Antiquing Wax!

I️ couldn’t pass up this cute little sewing machine cabinet at Goodwill for under $10. The machine was missing and the flip top was broken, but that just meant less work for me! To turn this into a desk, I️ had a piece of wood cut to fit and attached it with a LOT of wood glue left to dry overnight with clamps holding it in place.

For a bold, modern look that still complimented the vintage style of the desk I️ chose Country Chic Paint’s color Hollow Hill. It’s a gorgeous, rich emerald green and I️ couldn’t love it more. To add depth and character I️ lightly applied some antiquing wax and wet distressed. The oversized marble knobs were perfect for modernizing this piece. Now this sewing machine cabinet has a new lease on life as a petite and versatile desk!

Abbey {Painted Home Goods}

As a mom to twin boys, I am always busy. Twice the fun, twice the work! My Twin Tornadoes and salvaging neglected furniture are my passions. If a twin mom in a small apartment can fix up and paint furniture, so can you! In today’s throw-away culture and tendency towards cheaply made, mass produced home goods, I seek to provide something different, something unique. Bringing new life to discarded finds is my way of contributing to the responsible thrifting counterculture that has become a growing trend. When shopping with PaintedHomeGoods you can feel good about what you buy. Enjoy!
