I do not remember if I ever gave this piece a name. I suppose I should look at older entries. Anyway. She is DONE! The new palm sander I got for my birthday came in handy right away for getting the nasty paint off the top. After briefly considering sanding the whole thing down to its 'altogether,' I called it a day at the underside of the top.
One thing I haven't figured out is why this has an open face. I'm assuming it used to have drawers because there were some dips on the inner side walls that could be filled nail/screw holes. I think it would look great with small curtain rods installed across the front to 'hide' whatever you would store here. Maybe rods top/bottom so the curtains wouldn't just blow around and would really conceal.
