It’s Themed Makeover Day! Still one of my favorite days of the month.
Especially this month, cuz the theme is industrial.
Can I get a high five??
You might rather give me a “eww gross!” when you see this before pic.
That, is an old typewriter table. A slightly crooked old typewriter table. From back when they made typewriters.
When I see old pieces with signs of use and abuse, I like to imagine the stories behind them.
Do you ever wonder? This poor baby looks like the biggest dude on the high school football team leaned on it while typing one handed.
Anywhoo…I needed a small table to hold my sewing machine…so that’s how this month’s industrial epiphany came to be.
I scrubbed her down with a wire brush, and gave her a coat of spray paint in metallic weathered steel.
For fun, I added some word play on top.
Since the table is kinda crooked, I placed the vinyl letters kinda crooked too. ;)
The weathered steel spray paint is a little tricky to work with but I love the weathered look. It’s crucial to do very light coats to prevent the paint from running and dripping. I’m sure my trouble had nothing to do with the fact that I am a master procrastinator and was trying to finish this month’s project at the last minute…
If you’re an industrial style nut like me, you might want to check out my side table project for Themed Makeover Day.
