A Fun Project

Started to work on a fun project today. I brought home a new toy from a visit with my mom. It's a Viking Plus! sewing machine! I'm so excited I can hardly stand it. Squee! Of course, such a gorgeous machine deserves a really cool place to hang out so I picked this baby up at the junk shop downtown. Okay, so it's kind of a mess and a little on the ugly side right here.
But look at how it folds out and there's some really neat storage and shelving inside. So, I thought about what I wanted to do and a few hours later, voila, check out my new baby's home now....

That's a Rustoleum spray paint in a hammered finish. I adore this color! Sonny Boy painted the hardware for me while I was working on the cabinet. Those handles are so cool! It was a glitter Rustoleum in a soft black with silver glitter in it. I love it! Marshall the cat thinks it'll do, too.

Here's a closer shot of the door and the hardware. I'm so thrilled with how this cabinet turned out. As soon as the paint is cured, I'm getting the machine in here and taking it for a test drive!


  1. LUCKY YOU!!!!!! Sewing was my first love,(or should I say obsession), before crocheting & knitting. Can't wait to see what you dream up tp sew:)

  2. P.S. The cabinet is a perfect color choice, BLUE!! Looks wonderful & wow, such space! My cabinet only had one fold out surface, just enough to be frustrating as heck...

  3. Awesome! And I really love your cat too :)

  4. Awesome project! I work for Rust-Oleum and I wanted to say that the project you did looks fabulous!
    We would love for you to share this project, photo and instructions, on!
    Thanks and happy painting! :)
