What do do with this?

I have gotten this piece from my parents, and it's been in the family for quite some time. I have no idea what to do with it. I think it is pretty and it's been in the family, so I do not think I am allowed (or that I should) give it the usual white-paint-treatment, but I find it hard to place in the room.

And to make matters worse (although I do not like to use that word) there is another one, a similar, but much bigger one waiting to be moved to our house that I have just inherited from my grandmother. A very beautiful piece, but so hard to find a good place for.

I suppose this one  would benefit from being sanded and getting a new shiny coat, but it also looks like it could be made of veneer and that would make it a lot more difficult. 

Love the foot. But what to do with it?

Linking up to Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays, even though it is not really a thrift store find.


  1. Go at it with an open mind. If you do refinish it, the veneer looks to be in good condition and it shouldn't be a problem. I assume that since you can't paint it and if it doesn't look good anywhere in your home...pass it on down to the next relative in line...Or to me!

  2. Great piece! Could you remove the mirror and the drawers on top {which will require you to at least strip the top}? If so, I think it would make a great bedside table! I'm with you though, I would be itching to paint it!!
