I thought I would share the progress of my darling little treadle machine. I am restoring it on a tight budget so it's unfortunately not going to be totally true to the original state. I hope to make it look good anyway.
This is the damage it had. It had looked like some one had shoved it in the back shed for years. There were allot of stains and water damage to the lid.
This is what it looks like naked :o soooo brown!!!
To make it all match n the top I have stripped back the first layer. The wood underneath looks really good so I intend to find a nice deep stain then varnish the lot. I also need a new belt for it, at the moment I don't really know were I'll find one, any ideas?

Statewide sewing centre will probably have something.
