A few days ago I posted about this cabinet.
I am in the process of converting it to a base for treadle sewing machines …… I cut out the center section and took off the doors. I want to store extra machines in it , but it is nice to see them so the doors are gone. I cut down the height as well…..so it is a better working height
The next step is to paint it. I am doing a fake wood grain painting on it. The first step is to paint it yellow.
I used a color called “summer squash” the yellow will not finish yellow but will be covered with a stain and some will show through to make the grain.
After the yellow is dry I go over it with gel stain. I am using Brazilian Rosewood
and here is how it looks on the cabinet ends
Once this part is dry I’ll add the top and the treadle mechanism.
I finished hand quilting the Flannel quilt. I washed it and hung it to dry. If it were mine I would put it in the dryer but since I didn’t make the top or select the batting I am not sure whether it would shrink or not so to be safe I washed on gentle cycle and cold water and hang to dry
I love how it turned out!

I finished my machine quilting project on the treadle machine. I hung it over the sofa….and it looks pretty nice. finished size is variable because of the wonky piecing but it is about 72″ square….some places it is a bit larger.
