My mom and dad had this antique washstand in storage, that at one time they were going to use. Lucky for me, they never got around to it and it became mine.
It needed some major TLC. So after nailing and gluing everything back into it's original location, I lightly sanded it and dry brushed on a coat of Benjamin Moore's "Edgecomb Gray". The paint was no cost because I had a coupon for a free sample color. I hardly used any of it to coat the entire thing! After the paint dried, I brushed wood stain over the entire piece and then quickly wiped it off, leaving it with more of an aged look.
I had the original drawer handles, but the knobs to the cabinet doors were missing and had to be replaced. The table I originally had in the entry hallway wasn't really working for me so the washstand took its place.
