Wash Stand Turned Bar

I picked up this piece at Goodwill a few weeks back. The finish was just "eh". I think it may have been hand made.



I painted it in satin black, distressed it and put new hardware on it. But it still wasn't "wowing" me.





So I painted the inside. And then I was happy.









Happy Independence Day, Friends!

Love this. I would love to know what you used for the paint and the finish. I'm planning on painting a piece that I found at ReStore in black. I love how yours turned out. Great job.
