Hey…my weekend starts in just a few minutes! My hubby is taking me out for lunch and then to see the new release Home Run! I had to start my morning out with the all dreaded annual doctor’s visit but then I treated myself to latte at Starbucks afterwards, so all is good! I couldn’t wait to get home and but the knobs on this vintage wash stand I painted yesterday. I ran out of time last night…we were a tad bit late to our Neighborhood Bible Study Group as it was.
For this piece, I took the inspiration from Miss Mustard Seed’s nightstand she just painted for their master bedroom. It’s beautiful in blue but I wanted to try an new color I hadn’t used before from Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint collection; Chateau Grey. I’m completely taken by it!!!
You must see the before photo to understand what I had to work with. As you can see, one of the knobs were broken. YAY, that just means I don’t have to feel guilty by added a couple of glass knobs from Hobby Lobby!
I also chose to accent with Vintage White from CeCe Caldwell’s Chalk Paint. The top was done in CeCe’s Vermont Slate.
Something you may not know about me, I’ve always enjoyed art, specifically drawing and painting. When I was a child, my Great-Aunt who lived in England would critic my work. She was a beautiful landscape painter and I would send her samples and then she would write back to me. I never got the chance to meet her in person but she was very special to me. Later, in the 80′s, I sold my paintings in a local restaurant where I filled the walls with my work. (Gosh, I feel really old right now thinking back on this!)
I painted the original knobs and added aging wax on them as well as on the entire piece. Leaving them in their original state would have been too dark.
I am totally in love with this piece now! Thanks Marian for your lovely inspiration!
