Small Mustard Washstand
This is an extremely primitive piece that is really old as the hills. I don't have to tell you that it was acquired at auction because you know us by now....it was either acquired at auction or hauled out of a dumpster!!! LOL I should have taken a "before" pic...but I dropped the ball on that...just imagine the most homely wee cabinet, extremely dirty and sporting a coat of flat paint in reddish-rust. Terry washed it up and decided to repaint it with our favourite old mustard, leaving it slightly distressed and then waxed. You will notice that the door is slightly askew...but that really adds to it's primitive charm. This is an oldie with square nail construction and rough boards slightly out of square. All I can say is it is 100% charming. Topped off with an enamel bowl and water pitcher it's rustic charm just can't be improved upon. Lucky for us that the folks attending the auction that night had absolutely no vision!!
