Take a look at this sweet little washstand just dripping with character and patina!
I was quite taken with the dry wood and chipping paint. It was missing some hardware but the ones that were on it have aged rather uniquely with different colors on them…
My neighbor says it was pulled out of his grandparents old homestead. He says he remembers it from when he was a little boy.
I am taken with the chippiness. I sort of wish that I didn’t go over the yellow paint with the hemp oil as I preferred the paint in the pale yellow it was before. Oh well, it looks sweet this way too. I did give the top a good sanding and a very heavy coat of hemp oil which it drank up completely without waste. I left some of the chippy paint on it too…
I adore peonies and this is my first year of actually having my plant s bloom. One bud opened yesterday so of course I snipped it right away and brought it in! Turns out I may have also brought in an ant or two … oops!
