Special Singer Studio Stand

Say that 5 times fast! It's quite the tongue twister!  And even better it's a recent addition to the Studio that I've been meaning to share with all of you. Remember way back to the Summer of 2017, when I was working on finishing alive edge slab of cherry wood? 

This was destined to become a TV stand for the Studio, designed to fit over an antique wood chest that I use for batting storage. The supports were repurposed Singer treadle legs that I repainted with Rustoleum Soft Flat Iron paint.

Last Fall, DH finally assembled all the parts. I can't fault him entirely for this taking so long but I'm going to anyway!  Due to the width of the treadle legs and the irregular width of the slab, we had to add two battens on the top of the legs to ensure the top won't be damaged and would be solidly attached to the legs. It took a bit to convince DH that my design would totally work and to just get on with it already! It was worth the wait.

I LOVE the way this turned out! Next wood project will be to refinish the old chest.


  1. Very handy! That looks good. I like the old chest, too. It looks very solid.
