My husband and I have been checking out some local flea markets and I had been looking for something to replace an ancient wicker stand I had in the bathroom. I swear I have had that broken down little thing for 25 years. It was butt ugly but it served its purpose. Anyway, I scored one Saturday morning with this little jewel. It was the perfect size and it was only a dollar. Yes, I said one dollar.
I tried some new chalk paint from a company called Maison Blanche. The color I used for the legs is called sugar cane and is a really pretty grayish greenish blue. Hard to describe but really shabby looking and perfect for what I wanted.
Once painted with two coats, I distressed a little with a sanding block and gave it a coat of light brown wax.
The top was sanded and stained with Minwax Jacobean. Not bad for a dollar, huh?
