Before I start, I wanted to let you know that all my "found object" creations are custom pieces. There will never be another piece exactly like it because my found parts dictate what the end result will be. I try to use all "found" parts in hopes to recycle items and extend their life and keep them away from landfills. I guess you could call them "green creations."

I couldn't wait to get started on this old, beautiful sewing machine cabinet. The guts were beyond using again so I gutted all the hardware and built in a storage space with an old aluminum catering lid and used vintage square measuring sticks to accent and finish out the opening for the storage area. I also created, applied and distressed a custom GadgetSponge label for the inside of the top lid. Inside I created a custom shelf for storage and modified some trim for the leading edge to dress it up. Then I went to town carefully painting several layers of Annie Sloan chalk paint. I left the "secret compartment" drawer inside the orange color to accent it. Then I took quite a while to carefully wet sand and distress the whole piece to mimic actual wear that would take place over time. The beautiful light,pastel (Arles) orange comes through the (Florence) blue teal beautifully just like I had hoped it would. I finished the storage cabinet with light and dark Annie Sloan waxes to a buffed finish.

Here are the measurements...
Height: 31"; Width (side to side): 28"; Depth: 19".


This custom piece can be picked up after purchase at Timeline Antiques at the address listed below or it can be shipped (Shreveport, LA).

A lot of time and love went into each one of my pieces. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.
