The fawn color, a tawny gray, was shadowed by the gold. I believe in mixing metals, but the tones competed on this rather than complemented one another. It is pictured with two different vases just to show how styles and metals can combine beautifully. One vase is an antique white pitcher with gold design. The other I chose because it is more streamlined and I think the color palette is dreamy. The fawn is done in a weathered finish.
Though modernized by the refinishing, the feel and period of the piece is maintained and appreciated. There are six drawers total. Four good sized ones on the top portion while the bottom two are huge deep storage spaces.
As much as I adore Victorian antiques and vintage, I am drawn to mid-century work. Something about the cool lines and simplistic designing which still lends loads of character sucks me right in to its beauty.
