Repurposed Antique Sewing Machine

This antique Singer sewing machine was passed down from my great grandmother. It’s gorgeous except for the front drawer that has always been missing. We decided to combat the missing piece while giving it an updated look by removing the wood top and replacing it with stained concrete. The concrete table top was made using our usual mold from melamine, but this time we added a decorative edge using a polyurethane edge form mold. The color was achieved from a mix of deep brown and buff grout stain that was left over from the bathroom countertop project. Removing the old top allowed more of the pretty iron work to show through, plus the actual sewing machine that was inside and never seen will look great in the craft room! The following pictures are the process start to finish…
