reader shows off: vintage singer turned into a sink


Nothing makes us happier than when readers submit their home decor projects to us. Check out this beauty from Matthew Karl, who cleverly converted a vintage Singer sewing table into a sink in their half bath. Here’s what he wrote to us: “The sink was created from a vintage Singer sewing table that we previously used as a side table. Since we were doing a small bath remodel we needed a small vanity with an open base that would go with our 1920’s house. The top is created from reclaimed oak flooring, edge jointed and glued. Milked painted black and finished with multiple layers of marine varnish. The bowl was handmade (not by me) and the faucet is Delta. The based was in good condition with no rust so I just cleaned with wax and steel wool.”

Thanks Matthew! We love it.

Shelterrific Tip: These types of sewing tables are not easy to find. Here’s one on sale now at ebay.

That is just beautiful.

I’ve been looking for vintage/angique sewing tables lately for use as a table in my office, but would never have thought to make one into a vanity. Gorgeous!
