The latest MCM. I love this piece. Especially with the sliding cross-hatched panel! I have taken pictures both with and without it, and I prefer the extra interest the piece has with it. Probably because I have done this look so many times with the dark drawers and white body, so having this little panel is something different, and I like it!
I'm also a big fan of the legs. They still embody the MCM style, but they have a geometric uniqueness that can be hard to come by.
As far as the transformation goes, I painted the legs and body in off-white. the drawers were cleaned and spruced up, but they have the original finish because they were in very good condition. The finish is a dark walnut, it looks a little 'warm' in the pictures.
And here is the minny-me! If was unfortunate that the set only came as a pair. I would have loved to have had a matching nightstand. Minny-me is lonely. I love the little panel cross-hatched bit on the little nightstand. It isn't removable or slide-able like it is on the big piece, but it is really classy.
Below are a few more pictures with the sliding panel on the piece. There are actually 2 sliding panels, but I think I prefer it with just one of them on.
Its great when you find a piece that is versatile! I think this piece could be great in the living room, but still also be awesome in the bedroom with the nightstand working in tandem.
