Ooh she’s so pretty now. This is a small bath in our guest bedroom, it features a tiled shower and a built in cabinet for towels and bathroom necessities. I have been working on the bedroom too. I featured some of the work in thispost if you want to see more. Before The picture is a little dark and does not do justice to just how ugly it was. This was an example of a good idea gone horribly wrong. From the picture I had in my mind – to what the paint contractor heard – to this. And whatever they used to seal the top yellowed, so it really was pretty bad.
So I stripped it, sanded it back past the stain.
At this point I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it. I contemplated trying to achieve what I had in mind the first time around but as I worked with this piece and pondered what to do, I began to realize how simple the design is. It seemed to speak to me and what I heard was, “kiss it”, also know as keep it simple sweetheart.
So, I used these tools to distress the wood and that seemed to give it a more rustic, western look.
Put on a lovely and beautiful stain color.
I used polyurethane satin finish and bee’s wax to seal it.
It looks so good – much, much better.
Next, I need to find something to go on the wall above the commode and a white rug for the floor. Two very easy things to do.
I don’t really need storage but maybe a cute shelf for display or a nice picture. So, what do yo think? Kind of a quiet, almost spa look.
I’m linking up again, woo I’m on a roll twice in one day. Now if I can just figure out how to link to more than one party.
I absolutely love table vanities (we’ve made two in the past 1 & 2) I think this turned out simply lovely? What are your thoughts?
