Is it a Desk or a Vanity?

That is the question!

I picked this lovely little number up at a garage sale! It just spoke to me...

It had a bit of damage, but with the legs gracefully flared, it looked like a perfect fit for a makeover.
Initially, I was going to transform it and sell it, however, it turned out so lovely, that I am going to sell this vanity instead...
And use this lady's desk as my vanity! So for me, it's a vanity.
It seems more mature somehow!
 And it pairs well with the dresser that I transformed last year...

Along with switching out this vanity, I moved two pictures, one from the blue guest bedroom to above the vanity...
And replaced the one from above the dresser with this vintage rose print in gold and oak frame...
Now, I didn't even think that this would look this good...
I was so surprised to see that it plays off the yellow and gold trim on the silk drapes in this guest bedroom much better than it ever worked with the brown walls in the master.
Goes to show you that you need to move around your stuff and see how it looks in other rooms! You might be surprised too!
