I inherited an old sewing box, which doubles as an occasional table, but it was in a rough state. The lining fabric was falling apart and the woodwork had also seen better days. As I felt this could be a useful piece I took it apart and sanded it down.
The next job was hunting out some lining fabric for the lining, and I made a pattern using the old fabric I had removed. Making a new cardboard support for the fabric took a while but was well worth getting right before covering with the new material. Lots of upholstery tacks held it all in place before finishing off with a contrasting braid.
I was able to clean up the old hinges, but purchased two new knobs for the drawer. I chose small faceted glass knobs from Knobbles and Bobbles Ltd.
The drawer is lined with some Basic Grey Scrapbooking paper.
