So I found these very cool old rusty Singer Sewer legs at a garage sale for dirt cheap. There was barely a top to it . The top was in shreds and there was nothing I could do with it but toss it. So the coolest the thing I thought about this piece was the “MISHAP,” If you look really close the SINGER is upside down. I love this manufacturer malfunction and see it as a one of a kind and feel lucky to have found it.
I got it home and scrubbed the cast iron metal clean with soap and water and let it dry over night. My next step was to spray paint the bottom with a high gloss black paint. I applied two coats letting it dry 24 hrs in between.
I bought a piece of maple at the hardware store and cut it to the size I needed. I then applied a redwood stain made by Minwax. I waited for it to dry over night and then applied two coats of quick dry polyurethane made by Minwax also.
It turned out perfect and one of my favorite pieces
