This is one of those projects that I’ve had marinating in my little brain for a long, long time. I’m happy to report that the finished project turned out just like I hoped it would. (I love it when that happens!)
It all started when I picked up this fantastic secretary desk.
It was in really good shape, so I listed it as-is, but no one was biting, so it sat, and sat, and sat some more. Sat through the end of pregnancy. Sat through the newborn days. Sat through catching up on other, smaller, less work intensive projects that I could actually move by myself. And it finally had it’s turn come up on the docket. And I couldn’t have been more excited to give it the attention that it deserved.
I had a vision for her in shabby, distressed, french gray with dark walnut stained drawers and a fabulous vintage wallpaper on the back of the top cabinet. Like I said, when I was finished and stepped back, it was everything I imagined it would be.
I’m head over heels for this stately old broad! Hope you like her too!
