A Navy Bureau

I painted a bureau for my friend Ellie this past weekend.  She wanted a very dark navy color to match the color scheme in her room.  I chose the color Graphite which is a really dark charcoal/navy.
I think the outcome is a much more sophisticated version of an old bureau.

The knobs that Ellie found are very cool--they kind of have a tortoise shell look to them.  I had never seen anything like them.

Thanks Ellie, I had fun!

What Do I Call This?

I'm really pleased with the way this transformation came out...I'm just not sure what to call it...

It would work well as a side table...but it would also be a really cute (extra-small) buffet/sideboard for a small space.  It would also be a cool liquor cabinet.

Whatever it is, I'm loving the wire doors.  I kept the original knobs, just dry-brushed them with paint.
This versatile piece is for sale.  See details in "For Sale" section.
