Sewing Desk Update

Whew it's been a busy time lately. Lots of projects, and I've been gradually completing each one. Recently I worked on a desk that I made my sewing desk.
Very plain. Very, in need of some life.
Lots of storage!
A little rough, but not impossible to work with.
First, we prime. Already it looks better.
Smooth, and well, white.
Time to punch it up.
Some yellow, maybe?
This took a lot more work than I thought it would, but it turned out really great.

Works perfectly for my sewing machine!!
The only thing was, I wasn't happy with the knobs. I got these knobs from my local thrift shop, and decided I needed to jazz them up a bit.
First, we prime.
Then we paint.
Red! I like it already! But it needs something else...
Buttons! I picked out colors that match the room, in various tones and sizes.
A little hot glue and...
You've got some cool new knobs!
Love the way it looks! Adds a lot more interest.
I love my new sewing desk! It's so nice to have a place to get some projects done! I've already made a dress for Sabrina. More to come!
