Zinc Washstand with Pearl Effects

I have a great before and after today!

When I brought this piece home I envisioned it being painted black with heavy distressing and lots of natural wood showing.  I used a black milk paint and distressed but it turned out that wasn’t the look I really wanted.

I decided to go a different route and used General Finishes  pearl effects.
I used champagne pearl, which was a shimmery milk color in the can. Once it dried it became  more metallic.

First Project of 2014

Happy Belated New Year!
I haven’t been posting a lot of furniture projects lately and I blame life. You understand though, right?
I’ve been busy with a lot of custom orders but not much time to document them.
 Blogging is hard but Facebook is easy. 
If you follow me on Facebook you’ll see a lot more compared to the blog. I apologize in advance. 
Here is the first (documented) furniture piece of 2014. 
It’s a pretty one.
 I thought I had a before picture but it’s nowhere to be found.
To make up for not having a “before” picture I will share way too many “after” photos.
 I wish I had a paint color for you guys. 
I accidentally spray painted over the label. 
However, I do know it’s from Sherwin Williams & I’m planning on having them color match it in hopes of getting a name for it.
The hardware and fabric are both from Hobby Lobby. 
I really wanted to keep the original pulls but they didn’t all match. 
I think these are fun & modern though.
Maybe my resolution should be to post more furniture makeovers!
