Antique sewing machine is reborn as chic computer desk for a DIY master

Computer Table BeforeEvita snagged this 1926 Singer 66 sewing machine at her Goodwill, but was sad to find that it was beyond repair.

Happily, she found she could salvage the sewing machine's parts for use in another Singer 66 — and as she was also in need of a new computer table, this little antique got a new life.

Computer Table Before

The veneer on the table was in bad shape, and the top was useless. Evita stripped the table and gave it a coat of matte black spray paint, then installed a new top made from a scrap of MDF.

Notice her smart/geeky thinking, using a router bit to create a hole for wrangling cables!

Computer table before/after.

A fairly simple revamp turned a down-and-out appliance into a high-class and totally workable computing solution.
