So I found this awesome very old primitive dry sink…from the SECOND I saw it, I began to imagine all the possibilities!
It was primitive style which really appealed to me.
It was certainly unique and I really liked all the imperfections and character she wore thanks for years of use…she was pretty fantastic!
I was hoping to choose a color that suited her…one that complemented her highly.
I decided to go with Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Boxwood…a gorgeous green that is a favorite of mine.
I used some Bonding Agent when I mixed the paint as I didn’t want the chippy look.
I painted on three coats of milk paint and allowed it to dry for about a day between coats.
I took my time on this one and I really enjoyed this project.
Once painted up, I distressed and sanded it so that it had a smooth to the touch finish.
I used Miss Mustard Seed’s Hemp Oil to seal it up.
I also used the Hemp Oil to clean up the inside of the drawer as well as the inside of the bottom cabinet and doors.
That Hemp Oil did wonders!
The wood looked so refreshed and new.
I am so pleased with this piece!
How beautiful is this antique dry sink now?
No doubt about it…character marks and all…I’m in LOVE.
She is beautiful.
I’m so happy with how she turned out!
