Quick Commode Makeover

Good Morning my Beauties! I hope you all had a fantastic and Beautiful
We had a very busy one, with a goodbye party, a Homebrew Competition Party,
and Mothers day. By Sunday night I was TOAST!! But it was so fun to see
so many friends and family...It was worth it.

But Monday I was back to work. I am opening another booth over at
and I am suppose to be filling it..:)
SO I had to get to it.

I have had this antique commode in my basement for years and when I put in our new
Federal Buffet that I just finished (you can see that post HERE)
it freed this baby up.
We had originally stripped about 80 layers of paint off this thing
when we used to refinish antiques. So you can see how difficult it
was to put some paint on here....:)
So I decided to make a compromise. The drawers and top were in perfect condition
and to cover them would have been heart wrenching to me.
So I painted the more flawed wood of the base of it
with a custom color.

when it was done I waxed and distressed it, and then buffed it.
I think it was a nice compromise to leave some of the wood, yet it still has
the country chic feel.

I hope you enjoyed and I hope to soon be putting pictures up of
the new space..

Until then, Have a BEAUTIFUL day!
