Upcycled Vintage Yardstick & Singer Sewing Machine Base Console Table

Here's the "big brother" of the yardstick side table I previously posted.  

This table has been a long work in progress that is finally finished. There's a ton of custom work involved guaranteeing this to be a one-of-a-kind piece of upcycled furniture. There are many custom cut vintage and some colored and aged yardsticks across the top. After pieces all of them together I gave it several coats of clearcoat to protect its finish and to protect the surface from water. The edging is surplus metal roof rain guard rails. The corner pieces are parts of a "sacrificed" old metal angle square of mine. The Singer sewing machine base was horribly rusted so I spent a ton of time sanding and smoothing it down before painting it with many coats of high gloss black paint. Then I hand painted the small parts and bolt pieces with gold paint along with the surface of the Singer logo on both sides. Underneath I spent some extra time applying some metal came bar pieces (from stained glass work) along the edge of the metal rain guard flashing underneath so the sharp edge of it wouldn't be exposed. The corners are protected with pieces of modified copper pipe hangers. The bottom treadle/foot pedal pad can be used to hold books, magazines, a potted plant or whatever else you might want to store there.

Here are the measurements...
Height: 29"; Width (side to side): 48" (four feet); Depth: 16".

This custom item, along with my other creations, is available in the GadgetSponge Etsy Shop and at The London Gallery in Shreveport, LA!
