If you’re the kind of person who loves hosting get-togethers at home, then you’re going to love this drink station idea! Having a designated area for drinks is not only convenient for your guests, but it also helps to keep your party organized. Plus, it’s a great way to show off your personal style.
If you’re looking for a simple yet clever way to repurpose an old sewing table, consider using it as a drink station! This is a great idea for any home, especially if you entertain guests often. You can use the table to store all of your drinks, cups, and other accessories, and it will add a unique touch to your decor. Plus, it’s a great way to upcycle an old piece of furniture!
We say clever because you don’t need to do a lot of modification for this project. The hole where the sewing machine used to be made for a perfect compartment for the drinks. Its foldable wing on the other hand serves as a great place for glasses, pitchers or little snacks. This is a great project for those who want to have a beautiful and functional bar in their home without having to do a lot of work.
Looking at how quaint and rustic it is, it would seem that sewing tables are really meant to be drink stations in their ‘afterlife’! Just repaint it in any finish you like, place a container for the drinks, and you’re done! 🙂
It’s easy, beautiful and a great conversation piece!

Steps to turn your old sewing machine into a drink station:
Transforming your old sewing machine into a drink station is easy with just a few simple steps. To start, remove your sewing machine from your sewing table. Once the machine is removed, you can begin to clean and prep the area for your new drink station. Be sure to wipe down the surface and remove any dust or debris.
If you’re planning to repaint your sewing table, be sure to sand it down first. This will create a smooth surface for the new paint to adhere to, and will also help to create a professional-looking finish. Sanding is an important step in any painting project, so be sure to take the time to do it right.
If the paint dried completely, you can now add your own personal touch. Add a cute sign, some flowers, or anything else that you think would make your drink station special.
For your drinks cooler, we recommend using a metal basin or a heavy-duty plastic bin. Make sure it fits snugly in the sewing machine storage space to avoid any spillage. This will keep your drinks cool and within easy reach while you’re partying. Make sure your cooler is big enough to accommodate all of your drinks and ice.
What are you waiting for? Fill up your mugs with your favourite drinks and enjoy! Whether you’re relaxing at home or enjoying some time with friends, these drinks will help you kick back and enjoy the moment. Go ahead and indulge!
