I had intended to re-use the pulls, they are part of the reason I bought the piece, but once I got it painted, distressed and glazed, I thought the nickel cup pulls looked better. I'll save the originals for something else...
I guess it was meant to be a vanity... When I bought it, it still had the boards that held the mirror on, but no mirror. It would still make an excellent vanity with a mirror standing on it, or hung on the wall above...
But I always saw it as a desk, with a can of pencils and a stack of books...
I decided to line the drawers with the same fabric I used for the red trestle desk. It looks so good with the grey of the desk... which is a bit darker in person than in the photos.
The painted portion is lightly distressed and has been lightly glazed as well.
The dimensions are 46 1/2" wide, 19 1/2" deep, 30 1/4" tall.
Now that it's finished, I can even see it as a t.v. console, or an entryway piece... Heck, whatever it's purpose will be, it will look good doing it. I love how it turned out!
And I now have a CHAIR to match!
I forgot to take a "before" picture, but here's a quick "during."
You can see it was desparate for a change! :)
