I had absolutely no idea what these little wing things that came out were for. They folded right under the desk. Later I found out this was an old vanity, and they use to attach fabric to the wings. Weird. I just left them folded under, and with a little white and gray paint and a stencil and new handles. My final product.
I think it is for sale, but it is so cute and would look great in our bedroom... we will see what happens!
