I got this umm well I think its a vanity but it looked like it used to just be a dresser long long ago. I thought it was to me neither those things, so off with the mirror. I found a shelf that fit perfectly and an architectural topper piece that went on in place of the mirror. The color I chose was Behr scallion and sanded to let the black show through then put a hand rubbed wax finish and poof! Now its a country cottage chic hutch.
