Hair Salon or Dentist Office--you tell me??

Went to an estate sale today and picked up this gem.  I think is was used in an hair salon some time ago.  But when I went to check out they listed it as a dentist tray.  What do you think?  At the moment trying to decide what to do with it--maybe as a bedside table. 

Thanks for your help!

Sue shows a music stand as an end table in one of her former books she wrote and I loved that I idea. This however, is just a bit more unique than a music stand, but would be much harder to find.

Happy junking,
