Martha Washington Table Reinvented

This table came from Freecycle.  I picked it up from a front porch in Burke, VA.  It's not a very nice example of this type of victorian sewing cabinet as it's made of oak or pine, but it's great for this purpose.  Sorry I didn't take a before picture because it was pretty ugly, but here is the little beauty now.
I rolled on a Behr paint color called Cayenne, replaced the wooden knobs with glass and lined the drawers with antique map paper.  It's adorable and gets more comments than anything else I've done so far.
