It's finished! Updated Drysink Photos: It took a little bit of elbow grease, and way too much time to wax, but it's finally finished! I put the hardware back on and it is good to go! I love the way the white knobs looks with the "tiffany blue" color. If you are just tuning in now, or you need a refresher, here are all of my posts from this DIY: #100craftydays #chalkpaint #anniesloan #drysink #diy #refinish #repurpose #wood #furniture
