I brought this washstand home back in August. The finish was in pretty rough shape and it was missing a drawer pull. The hinges on the little door were held on with nails instead of screws. Otherwise, it was in fairly decent condition.
I decided to paint the rest of this one in Dixie Belle’s Putty.
If you’ve never tried this color I want to encourage you to give it a try. Just look how gorgeous it is.
This is the first time I’ve tried it, but you can bet you’ll be seeing it again in the future. It’s definitely a ‘safe and reliable’ neutral.
I thought it would be fun to play up the rustic nature of this little washstand by using Prima Marketing’s Fine Horseman transfer.
I was initially planning to use some clear glass knobs on this piece, but they really didn’t have the right look. So instead I pulled out my stash of wood knobs and found 5 matching ones. I filled the holes for the original pulls using Dixie Belle’s Mud before I painted and then drilled new single holes for knobs.
It really was just a pleasure working on this piece.
