Last summer, my husband came home
from an auction with a washtub
just the perfect size to make into a sink for our laundry room.
My dad, the woodworker, and I drew up some plans
for a cabinet for it to sit upon.
We just got it finished and installed!
I really like the way it turned out.
I think it has the look of an old wash stand.
Unfortunately, our old sink had a backsplash
that was attached to the wall REALLY well.
So, as you can see, we (my husband) also had to do a little drywall work.
I was going to paint it and make it beautiful before showing it to you,
but the paint lid had rusted and the paint is completely dried.
So, I took the can to the paint store
and the lid was too rusted to even read the old paint label.
The paint store clerk wanted to color match it.
I hesitated because I haven’t ever tried color matching.
I was hoping to just touch up that area
and not have to paint the whole wall.
And I wasn’t sure whether or not the color matching is that accurate.
Then I remembered that the previous owners of our house
had left a printed out spreadsheet of paint colors they used in each room.
I came home and found it!!
The spreadsheet even listed the color formula used to mix it.
Next time I go to town I am going to go back armed with this information.
I am very hopeful that it will match.
Wish me luck!!
