There is something to be said for the kind of gal who not only cutes up an ancient sewing table like it ain’t no thang, but goes so far as to match it to her own sewing machine for an extra kick in the pants. That gal is Ava, and you can see more on her blog Pacific Designs. Even better, the whole thing was free from craigslist! All I ever find for free on craigslist is literally, piles of dirt. What’s up with that? WHAT UP WITH THAT?! (What Up With That is probably my favorite SNL skit of all time)

    I think I have that exact machine and table (it was my Grandma’s)!

    Yes!! Jason’s character who dances in the track suit the whole time…LOVE it!

    Major kick in the pants! So cute I can’t even bear it…well, maybe just a little longer. ::swoon::

    Also? Isn’t Phoenix craigslist the best. We should get into glass making or something…oh wait, that’s sand. Blast! (pun unintentional but seemingly fitting)

    Love it! You know what? I have the same machine (the old Singer 401), and I love it! It will sew through anything, even blue jean hems! I got it for free when I bought the $15 cabinet it was in. Thanks for these pics. I’ve been thinking of repainting my cabinet. Think I’ll drop by her blog for the how-to.

    Ooooooooweeee! I thought I was the only one (besides my 12 year old brother) who thought that skit was hilarious! I knew I liked it around here… lol

    Great redo, how cute is that?

    Thank you so much for featuring my work on your wonderful blog! I am so excited about all of the attention this has sent my way. Thank you again and again. I will be sure to submit my next remodel project to this awesome site with the hopes that it can be shown in the same way.

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

    this sewing table and perfect for people who are interested in sewing and handicrafts, during stitching, lots of accessories are needed from needles to threads and scissors and all need good storage, a great table remodeled very competently

    I literally just had to rewind that skit 5 times because I was laughing so hard I kept missing parts! My favorite is “political wi-ill!” So glad you linked to that–it’s now safely saved in my Bookmarks!
