Adding fabric and drapery hardware to furniture?

You might remember the potting bench we dressed up for use as a serving table. We have it in the shop to hold displays, at the moment, but it's permanent home is Pam's wrap around porch. If you didn't see it, click here to read the post.

We recently came across a unique piece of furniture and decided to do a similar treatment. This one did require a little assembly.

Nothing like the ole allen wrench to make an awkward job even more difficult. We must have at least dozen of the same wrench, by now.

The additional pieces are behind the mirror, a couple are in the front. MDF is very heavy, by the way!

Presto! The pinch pleated, lined curtain is in place.

You can leave the curtains open if you don't need to hide the things on the shelf.

Inquiring minds want to know: what would you use this piece of furniture for? A vanity or a potting table? In the house or on the porch? Leave a comment and let us know.

Mine are too small, but I think it would be cool in a bathroom! The under shelf could be used for the clothes basket, or if needed, a kitty litter pan!
It's a neat looking piece of furniture, but I'm allergic to MDF AND allen wrenches :^)
