For as long as I can remember my mother had a dressing table.
First it was brown wood tone, then in the 70s she “antiqued” it (and a few other pieces) green. I got the dressing table (which we used to call interchangeably the desk or vanity) and my sister got the needlepointed bench (I think).
When our master bathroom was built I designated a space for this piece of furniture.
In order to move it from its temporary place in the closet to the bathroom I removed the drawers to make it lighter.
After the baseboard was installed in the bathroom the dressing table didn’t seem to fit.
I forced it in the alcove and it fits very snugly.
Unfortunately I was also hoping to put shoe molding on the floor which would surely prohibit the piece from fitting in this spot.
I have a plan to refinish this dressing table in some way. I haven’t yet decided on the finish nor do I have a good solution to the baseboard dilemma.
