Project Sewing Room: Restoring a metal work table to use for my cutting table
Today I’m sharing how I restored my metal table Richard bought at an estate table. It had a lot of rust on it so there was no way I could cut fabric on it as is. But it was so perfect to use for cutting.
First, I had to sand the top with coarse paper and my electric orbital sander until all the rust marks were gone.
Then WD40 was used to clean and shine it.
Followed by mineral spirits which were wiped on the table with a rag to remove the residual oil from the WD40.
Finally, I sprayed three coats of oil based satin polyurethane sealer on the table to prevent more rust from coming back.
And one more project closer to the end!
