I've been finding some really great furniture recently at thrift stores!!! I love it, especially since furniture has been flying out of my booth lately!!! One of my most recent finds was this three drawer wash stand/commode.
As you can tell, it's in really great condition, but this was heading to my booth and the green and glazed look doesn't really fit in with my booth decor. So, I gave it a little makeover.
I stripped down the top and the drawer and door fronts.
Sorry, this is the only shot I got of the stripped top. I, of course, painted the rest antique white.
I did not like how the insert on the door looked after the paint was stripped and sanded and stained with Minwax Provencial stain so we changed the look a bit and added beadboard.
Doesn't it look so much BETTER?!?!?
(Does it bug anybody else how crooked that window is?!? I keep meaning to fix it!)
I kept the drawer pulls and simply spray painted them white.
One last look of the before and after
The wash stand is available in my booth at Collette's Vintage!!
