She Upgrades An Antique Sewing Machine With Beautiful Artwork




I love how DIYs allow you to breathe new life into old things.

Garage sales and flea markets are full of interesting items from the past that sometimes might just need a bit more love, like this old sleigh from the 1900s that was transformed into a beautiful lounge.

DIY projects can be magical like that, taking something old and worn down, and with a bit of imagination and some work, making it beautiful again.

That’s what this Imgur user did after she found a beat-up 1920s sewing machine at a flea market.

After letting it sit in her own garage collecting dust for a few years, she finally refurbished it, adding an extra, beautiful artistic flair that brought out even more personality.

Scroll through the photos to see just how gorgeous the sewing table turned out.
