    I would paint it a bright accent color with a high gloss paint.

    Cut in half and make a bench with flat boards for seat.

    I like the white shabby chic idea. It looks like you have a white and dark dresser on each side. Keep the medallions dark to match other metals but hang a beautiful colorful picture that speaks the style of the room and pulls in that gorgeous eggplant color. It seems to be missing an accent color in the room which the picture can bring in and maybe then a pillow or lampshade to match

    Can easily increase height by adding 2 x 4 legs that will be hidden then paint a color of your dreams. Then I would pad and do button tuft on the sections with the circles. Will be fabulous

    Paint the inset (circle section to look like metal -I would go with rustoleum matte black or oiled bronze but you might want it lighter). Paint and slightly distress the frame.

    Such a great find Penny. I've never seen this style before. My hubby is a bicycle enthusiast and immediately saw wheels - but you probably want to continue with a LAKE theme. I would paint it a weathered white wood and pad over the circles and cover that with canvas. Then I would attach to the wall off the floor and give it some height.
