As you may recall, the ranch house we purchased last spring came fully furnished. Being that we had a limited amount of furniture to start with, I decided to hang on to most of it and replace things gradually. Partly because I am not good with interior decor, but mostly because I felt completely overwhelmed with the amount of items that I wanted to replace.
This sideboard is one of many items that I have yet to replace. Reason being, it is a very practical piece. It holds all of the kids’ schoolwork as well as other random office supplies.
I was hoping that maybe I could give it a facelift and make it work. The problem is, that I’m not sure which direction to take it. I’m trying to move toward the King Ranch/Southwest/Cowboy/Cowgirl/Western look without forking over my entire savings.
As for the mirror, I picked it up secondhand, but it originally came from Restoration Hardware. I love all things Restoration Hardware. Plus, it’s the only mirror in the house where I can stand back far enough and check my outfit for the day. Which is why it is hung a little low.
So, my designer friends, do you think this piece is worth salvaging? Or should I haul it out and purchase a new piece?
