Table with Two Drawers

So... What would you call this piece?  Is it a table?  A nightstand?  A chest of drawers?  I'm really not sure!!
I picked it up at an auction a couple of weeks ago.  I thought it was really cute. After more thoroughly inspecting it at home, I am pretty sure that it was handmade.  So, it was probably designed to fit a specific purpose and space. 




I wanted to do something totally different with this piece.  I dry brushed it with one coat of paint, then gave it a sanding.  I did the body in white and the drawers in turquoise.
I also switched out the hardware.  I don't think that the knobs that came with it were original to the piece, because they were actually unfinished wooden ones.


Because this is the first piece I have done in this manner, I am a little uncertain.  Do you think that it looks alright? Or should I perhaps go over it again with more paint?

  23. I think it looks like it used to be a sewing machine cabinet in another life. They probably secured the 'lid' down, and made drawers for it. It looks fabulous, whatever it used to be!
