I am always on the lookout for rare pieces of furniture. I came across this beautiful wash stand at a flea market in Lexington. The picture above is the same wash stand I purchased, but in pristine condition. Although the wash table at the flea market was missing the towel rack, hardware, and had a faux marble top, but I saw the potential! It was a steak for $20. The total cost for this DIY was $30.
Here is the original wood door and the faux marble top. I was going to strip the table top, but I decided to keep it because it didn’t look fake and it grew on me.
Start by painting the entire piece with Glidden Gripper Primer. Then apply 2 coats of the ColorPlace Interior Satin Antique White paint, letting dry in between coats. Once it dries, use a craft paint brush and paint one coat of ColorPlace Interior Blue Medium Base paint on the wood accent and drawer handles. One coat of the ColorPlace paint will create a sea green color. If you paint a second coat it will change the color to a Robin’s Egg Blue.
