The rescued furniture is not for the cat, I swear

This little dressing table was rescued from a dumpster - totally thrown away and unloved! Poor little furniture.


Stamped on the back - this looks like a well traveled dressing table. Finland and Los Angeles?
It was sitting in the dining room waiting to be painted when I walked by and saw this:

Hmmm. ;)
The arms that swing out were removed for painting and haven't been put back on yet, but with a coat of white paint and a few Christmas decorations it looks great in the entry under a Goodwill bought mirror. And there is a second drawer to be put in - it was briefly misplaced but have no fear - it has been found!

Notice anything weird in the photo? I walked by and caught her again. I swear she is not allowed on any other tables in the house but she is really in love with this one. What a goof. :)

Obviously she has an affinity for Finland. It must remind her of a previous life. ;)
