This large counter reveals many years of constant use through the extensive wear seen on the original blue paint and the fabulous, distressed top demonstrating it was used often as a work surface. It is the very distress that creates the wonderful, worn character in this truly vintage sideboard. The large size makes it versatile to be used in today's larger homes, such as a kitchen island or large master bathroom vanity. This item is part of our “un-restored” collection and is being sold in "as is, used" original condition; how we found it in Europe allowing the buyer to customize as they wish.
