One man's writing desk is one woman's sewing station

My sewing clutter and machine had taken over my kitchen table. Between the sanding and painting I was always worried it would get dirty. Therefore, I was on the hunt for a desk, but not just any desk, a desk with character. That's when I came across this beauty.  The desk was in excellent condition, good bones and no major damage.

I decided to paint it the same color as my night stand. I gave it an antique finish, changed the hardware and behold this beauty!

Now I can finally set up shop with the proper work space.
