The tale of 2 little washstands and really cool tags for your items

I was very surprised these 2 did not sell over the weekend.....
I  LOVE vintage washstands...maybe not so much for everyone else? 

This one has great original hardware and has been painted in
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Paris Grey and Old White with light wax and a bit of dry brushing over the drawers and door.....

And this little beauty...............
has been painted with Annie Sloan Old White with some distressing and clear wax......

I am going to store them until I have a space here-
I put my name on their waiting list for a space today! 

Here are the tags my daughter-in-law made for me....I purchased the tags from a local office supply store & made the stamp with a DIY kit I found on-line....the little nest stamp looks close to the one on the top of my blog....I just love how they turned out!!  I might try tea staining the next batch.......If you do try the DIY stamp--one suggestion--put a tiny drop of glue on the letters as you position them....It will help them stay on longer......

Just love them! ...Pretty excited to get my space....Think it's too soon to call and see if my name has moved up the list?


  1. I would have bought one of those washstands if I was in Illinois! They are both nicely done!

  2. Love the washstands Chris... and the tags are darling.. I never say darling...but they are!

  3. I can't believe they didn't sell. Whew, they would have been gone in a flash if I had been traveling that way. They will sell!


..thanks for taking the time to comment.....I appreciate your feedback....
