I bought this cute antique wash stand from Cindy in Lincoln. I confess to a weakness for antique wash stands. The little door...the size...the decades of use that they have survived. Plus I love empire style dressers, and this had that wonderful curved top drawer.
I painted it an off-white. There were stains on top that seeped through the paint. So I distressed and then added a coat of light brown wax. It was a little streaky and a little too dark.
So I buffed a little clear wax on the areas that were too brown. (I know, I should have done the clear wax first). It never really lightened up as much as I would have liked.
I had purchased these four old brass knobs at a garage sale a couple weeks ago for $1. They were still hanging out in my purse, so I knew right where to find them.
I used a green DIY chalk paint with good ol' Behr paint for the interior of the drawers.
Overall I'm pretty happy with it -- naming it "Wahoo" after it's birthplace.
Resurrected to a new life.
