THE RETRO SEWING BOX UPDATE

Lauren Graham

Vintage furniture is a fabulous way to add some eclectic charm and character to a space. You can also pick up some fantastic bargains on vintage pieces that need noting more than a little TLC to bring them back up to date. Take a look at this old sewing box got some new retro threads, transforming it into a trendy accent piece.

WHAT WAS USED:

  • Fabric - various designs from collection Cube
  • Staples
  • Hot glue gun
  • White spray paint

METHOD:

  •  All the fabric was removed from the sewing box
  • The upholstery pins were then sprayed white to match the colour scheme
  • The legs of the sewing box were sanded down and varnished with wood stainer

 

As you can see, the end product has been totally updated to create a retro piece that would certainly not be out of place in a modern home.
