Woman Transforms Old Sewing Table - Her DIY Transformation Is GENIUS!

Not a lot of people sew anymore, but old sewing tables that accommodated our grandmothers’ machines are easily found in garages and thrift shops. One crafty blogger decided to make use of an old table in a new way, but she had to give it a makeover first.

Linda Terry showed off her DIY new drink table-- an upcycled old sewing table with a vibrant new look. For parties or summer barbecues, the new drink table is going to get a lot more use than it did when it held an old sewing machine.

Terry said the transformation wasn't that hard at all. All she had to do was remove the old inner mechanism that once raised and lowered the sewing machine. In its place, Terry put a plastic basin to fill with ice and beverages. It's a stroke of genius.

After a good sanding and a new, vibrant shade of turquoise, the piece was ready for display. The bin holds the ice, and the side table that would normally hold fabric and supplies is perfect for a tray, some glasses and a vase of flowers.

What a great project!
