The Red Secretary
Ok… so I know I already updated a secretary for a child, because I thought it was sized just right, but this one spoke to me in a different way so I knew it would be a perfect piece for the foyer! A nice place to throw all of that mail and your keys and then shut the door so you don’t have to see it! I had the piece a while before I could decide what I wanted to do with it… and of course because I was busy getting ready for Lucketts I didn’t take the time to get a before shot! However, the piece was in excellent condition and made out of solid Tiger Oak, it was just a little plain for my taste..
It is painted in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Emperor’s Silk… perfect on Oak… and I slightly distressed, waxed and buffed it.
I left most of the original hardware, but replaced the wood knobs with crystal ones!
What do you think? I love to read your comments!
Thanks for stopping by…
Until next time!
