It’s still a work in progress, but I love it already! I’m waiting for the paint to cure so that I can seal it and begin getting to know the treadle sewing machine. (I’ve named her Mildred Nell, after my Grandma who used a treadle machine.)
The paint color is Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Eulalie’s Sky. As you can see, in different lighting the color can look like a pale blue or more of a mint green. It’s a lovely vintage shade that looks right at home with the spools of green and blue thread found in one of the drawers. Don’t hate me for painting an antique! For much of it’s life, this table wasn’t stored in ideal conditions. It was a perfect candidate for paint.
The graphics are from The Graphics Fairy. Check out her section on Transfer Methods for tips on resizing and getting your design on your surface.
I’ll share more photos once it’s done!
The machine has some interesting graphics. Any idea when it was made?
Yes, it’s a 1911 Singer 66 Red Eye. They’re still pretty easy to find, thankfully.
oh my, I love it even more now! I couldn’t tell that this was the color on IG. I LOVE this!!!
Thank you, Erin! It’s really hard waiting to seal it and start using it! I keep peeking in on it to see how it’s doing. :)
