Finally adding the finishing touches to my singer sewing machine base. I look a while to find what I wanted for the detailing but finally decided on keeping the back and gold singer colour combination.
Using a metallic gold paint originally meant for cars so I knew it wouldn’t chip or fade I highlighted the intricate logos on the sides and the name located in the middle of the base.
After the gold detailing was finished and dried I added a simple wooded top, not 100% happy with the top but I was to excited to shop around 😅
After a lot of elbow grease and destroying a some iron wool and sponges I got the build up of muck off of my base and left it out in the sun to fully dry before applying the rust treatment and spray paint.
Once primed I covered it with 8 coats ( about 3 cans) of black gloss finish spray paint. It look about 3 days as you had to leave it for ages between coats to make sure it dried but I’ve gotta say I’m really happy with it. 😍
Now I’m not normally one for crafts that don’t involve a needle and a thread but when I found this gorgeous antique singer sewing machine base I made an exception.
After some struggle to get it in the car and back to mine I assessed the damage the original paint is chipped and it’s incredibly rusty but I feel it is destined to be my new sewing desk 🤩 I think I found my summer project, let’s hope the weather stays nice for it!
Found these nice light striped jeans in the clearence section for only a £10 ,bargain, loved the colour and pattern but not the wide leg cut or the un-hemmed framed bottom.
So i first edited the shaping of the trouser legs for my preferred bootleg cut. after a few trials i achived the wright look not to tight but not to baggy and sewed both legs up, trimmed of the excess and edged. then i hemmed the bottom of the trousers to give them a more finished look.
