This fabulous washstand was given a modern flare by Andrea from Crossroad Creations with Vanilla Frosting, Fresh Mustard, and both Natural and Antiquing Wax!

I am excited to share with you today this adorable old wash stand that was given a makeover with Country Chic Paint! The first thing we did was make a new top using old barn wood, which was a rich brown color. This inspired the rest of the color choices which is made so easy by using the Hand Painted Color Card which features actual spots of paint!

The natural wood of the barn wood was very warm, so we paired it with one of my favorite colors, Fresh Mustard with Vanilla Frosting as the accent. The first thing we did was paint the inside of the cupboard, the doors and the drawer with Vanilla Frosting. After allowing them to dry I used 120 grit sandpaper to distress along the edges, followed by the Natural Wax to finish.

The main body of the piece was painted with two coats of Fresh Mustard. I first used a layer of Natural Wax, followed by the Antiquing Wax so that I was able to wipe away the excess wax easily using a microfiber cloth, leaving the strongest antiquing effect along edges and corners.

After I attached the doors onto the front, I used a fresh cloth to buff the entire piece. I thought about updating the hardware, but once I tried this old set, I just fell in love with the result. I hope you enjoyed this makeover!
