Ooh, I love it! I have one of those (that looks like the before pic) that I bought at a yard sale this summer for $2. Now I know what to do with it! Thanks.

Der Nähkasten ist in weiß viel hübscher :-)! Très chic und die großen Holzspulen sind auch toll!
Ich wünsche Dir ein schönes Wochenende, liebe Viola und falls Du morgen trödeln gehst, viel Spaß :-)!
Herzliche Grüße

What a transformation! It is gorgeous. I have a similar one in France, in lighter, but just as plain, wood. I am so going to paint that next time we are there.

Tres Chic and so lovely!

I've been painting everything white lately. Then I take a stick dipped in black paint and rub out the edges, the man just looks at me as if I were crazy.
