About a year ago I found this wash stand at the Salvation Army. It was painted this ugly shade of green. Yuck!
I worked on stripping the top and the drawer fronts, adding bead board to the door, repainting it white and spray painting the existing drawer pulls.
It's first makeover looked like this.
A huge step up from that lovely green, but it sat and sat in my booth, so I took it home where it sat and sat some more.
I've had a plan for this wash stand for awhile now. I bought Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in Typewriter over Thanksgiving and found new drawer pulls a few months ago on ebay. I made some time this weekend to give it its second makeover.
I love it even more now than its first redo! The black with the dark top just looks so classic and elegant!
The drawer pulls are stops from a pump organ. They all have this beautiful script on them, but each have a different word like Principal and Echo.
This is the first piece I have ever painted black. Usually I'm strictly a white girl, but black has completely won me over!!
I sealed the milk paint in MMS's Hemp Oil. It gave the piece such a beautiful subtle shine.
I'll be taking the wash stand back to my booth this weekend where, hopefully, it sells this time!
