Shabby Wash Stand


While Al was in Alaska for 6 months I did some decorating....I always paint something and rearrange things while he is gone. One of my projects was this washstand. I wish I had the "before" photo of this piece. Picture an oak wash stand with peeling varnish or whatever they used on it add some big ugly hardware and that's the before.


I bought new hardware on ebay and painted it white. I looked for a glass knob at Lowes for the door but wasn't successful, all they had was a very modern looking glass knob and I don't want that. I will have to check ebay. In the meantime I just painted what was there and it's ok for now.


I will be posting the before and after photos of the room that the wash stand is in. I need to put up a quilt rack before it's ready for photos and I'll need my husband's help. He has been in Alaska for the past 6 months and his plane comes in tonight at 11:30. I'm pretty sure that putting up my quilt rack will not be on the top of his list of things to do when he gets home, but soon....

Love your shabby wash stand! I was just looking for glass knobs and found the same thing you did at Lowe's. If you have a Home Depot, they had exactly what I was looking for.
Can't wait to see the rest of the room!

Home Depot has the glass pulls and knobs. It's beautiful! You did a fantastic job.
