Once upon a time, a little farmgirl got a makeover:
This tiny drysink is one of several pieces of "primitive pine" I received from my friend Donna, who was cleaning out her garage a couple months ago. I sat it here in a corner of my sunroom until I came up with a plan.
I wasn't entirely sure what to do with her since she is a little bottom-heavy (well, so am I, but no amount of paint is going to help that), but she had a cute little top half so I thought I'd put the focus on that.
Here she is, all dolled up with 2 pretty paint colors, new chickenwire to replace her screens, and sparkly glass knobs:
Ooooh, shiny.... I like shiny.
Her bottom looks a bit lighter now with the new paintjob.
She's painted in Glidden's Muslin White and accented with Martha Stewart's Rainwater. I just bought a sample can of the Martha color, and still have some left over.
I distressed a little around the edges to make the details stand out. But I didn't want to dirty her up with glaze or antiquing. I like her fresh and pretty.
I just found these dishtowels to match at TJ Maxx today. I need to stay away from there... :)
That is all of her - what do you think? Linking up to Susan at BNOTP for Met Monday!
