Vintage Washstand Revamp

Hey Readers! Denise here from Salvaged Inspirations, come learn how to use WoodUBend and Chalk Mineral Paint in this Vintage Washstand Revamp!

Woodubend White Washstand Before and After


Step 1: Prep time!

To prepare for a new paint finish, I used a sander to scuff sand the entire piece and then wiped off all the dust. I then primed with the BOSS Primer in GRAY. Grey primer works fabulously under dark colors AND light colors. If you’re ever unsure if you’re painting light or dark, a grey primer is a good bet and will help you either way!

Step 2: Time for Paint!

After the primer was dry, I went in with two coats of Cotton Chalk Mineral Paint. I did this with the 2″ mini paintbrush for the perfect look.

Step 3: WoodUBend!

Now for the fun part! I added the full applique into the middle of each front panel. For the harp section and drawers, I used a heat gun to warm up the WoodUBend and then cut them into sections. These appliques are amazing! One design can turn into four… or more! I used a portion on the harp and then parts around salvaged knobs to embellish the old salvaged knobs I found. Then I had two little pieces left which I could have saved for another project but I decided to use them under the top of this washstand.

Step 4: Add a special touch!

After I painted the appliques in Cotton, I decided to mix a silver pigment in the Gloss Top Coat. I then took the mixture and painted the appliques to give it a shiny look.
