Upcycled Antique Ceiling Tiles = Ladies Dressing Table

My FBP is one of those guys that loves to have projects to keep him busy.   So we came up with an idea to build a dressing table for me to use.  We had a small space to work with and we both wanted to upcycle something.  So, I went in search of something really cool!  I found the top of this dressing table at the Fremont Market.  It's antique ceiling tiles that were mounted to a wood frame.  




My FBP took it from there!  He ordered these really cool hair pin legs that he attached to a board, then attached the board to the antique tiles and to the legs.  He also built a drawer to go underneath.  



I'm using an antique chair from a 1920's English pub table I bought years ago to go with it.  It's not pictured here.  



You may remember the last piece of upcycled furniture my FBP built for us out of 1950's milk crates.
