Recycled and Upcycled ...White Wednesday ..

We are joining in Another Beautiful White Wednesday ... Hosted by Kathleen of Faded Charm ...

Here at Sweet Magnolias Farm ..we are true junkers ..

We're the gals that buy the "junk" ..that people exclaim ..what in the world do they want with that "Junk" ....and we just giggle ...


We see beyond what it is and what it can become ...

This week we created the fabulous table or desk whichever someone would like it to be ...from an old treadle sewing machine we picked up at a sale ..and was really beyond any desire the way it was ..

We removed the top and the drawers and were left with the base that was needing a top ...

Not wanting to buy new wood for the top ..or line up old planks we had ...we wanted something different ...and what better top could there be than an old Twin headboard ..which we cut the legs off of...

We added some decorative corbels on the sides with a wood plank back and decorative vintage top we had lying around ...Once they were married together and painted ..

Recycled, Re-Used, and Re-Created ....

they make a stunning match ...!!!

Happy White Wednesday ...

  6. HOW COOL IS THAT?!!!!! I am interested if the treadle still worked before you painted it? My grandmother had one when I was small - we used to run upstairs and make it rock back and forth, as fast as we could - until one of us would catch a finger in the grate. LOVE this!

    Just posted a link on my sidebar to your apron giveaway - I actually posted (just by coincidence) an apron on WW, last evening - thanks a million - Tanya
