Primitive Wash Stand - Painted, Finished

This is the painted finish for my Primitive Wash Stand  project. I picked up a litre of oops Turquoise latex Saturday morning. Pretty good deal - $1.50 plus tax.
Mixed up some homemade chalk paint using the oops paint.
The recipe I use is 1/1/6 (1 plaster of paris, 1 warm water, 6 parts latex paint, mix very well).

Side view, door repaired, painted. 
Needed 'something more' so I added Taupe Latex paint accents.
Finished - trimmed with taupe over turquoise.

Dad checking it out.  My Hero !
Love the handles.

Hope you enjoyed seeing this project to completion (see here and here).
