Jake came across this piece while on a run in our old neighborhood and was so proud of his find. I still remember walking through the door to find him (and it) waiting for me right in the middle of our dining room. The bottom drawers were difficult to open/close and one of the top drawers had a hole in it- none of which have been repaired.
I liked the distressed look so I left it untouched for a few months. As a matter of fact, it was serving as storage space in our laundry room until I needed a space to create a mimosa bar for a bridal shower. Since my search for a unique piece hadn't turned anything up, I decided to pull it out to see whether it could work. As you can see, beside our new dining room table it looked a lot less distressed and a lot more gross.
What do you think? It definitely served it's role for the mimosa bar set up. Do you think I should keep it in the dining room or put it back and pull it out when entertaining? It's easy to move because it's on casters, but I'm torn.
