Now, on to another furniture redo.
Apparently, back in the day when multiple people shared a bathroom in a house, women used these tables to apply and store makeup. From the swinging arms a skirt would be hung which would conceal a stool for sitting and the drawers when not in use.
Here's the vanity after I re-glued the top, repainted it and added new pulls.
I used milk paint and distressed the legs and the edges of the piece.
The arms still swing readily and will soon sport a new skirt.
It's always nice to give an old, discarded piece new life and learn something new at the same time.
