The Secretary


Oh where to begin~  I have been working on this secretary for quite a while.  With so many choices, it's was a difficult decision.  Graphite and Old White won, and as you can see.  Sometimes I tend to play it safe, as generally safe sells.  However, what I have found lately is most of the furniture I have painted every other color other than Graphite and Old White sells..sometimes even before I get it finished.  We will have to see how long this lasts...if it makes it to the shop :)


For now, it has found a temporary home in my living room. (Until tomorrow when it is supposed to find   a place in the shop)  Truly, it's a good thing as I love my piano, and this wall is the only wall in my home that both the secretary and piano can be placed on right now.  If I ever finish our office, the piano will move to the office, while this beautiful secretary will have to come back home with me...if it doesn't sell first! 
Enjoy~

***UPDATE***
My son was hurt at football yesterday..something about his rotator cuff?? OUCH!...so do you know what that means?!  It has to stay at my house for a while...or forever! lol~

  6. I've been looking everywhere for a secretary that isn't outrageously expensive. It's tough since they seem to be so popular now. You did a wonderful job on refinishing it. I'd say, Keep it--it looks beautiful!

  7. Your secretary is absolutely beautiful. And I'm not kidding when I say that I just finished a secretary EXACTLY (well I guess mine is the 3-drawer model rather than a 4-drawer model) like yours ( http://shabbylisaw.wordpress.com/2011/08/30/i-want-this-secretary/ ). I'd love to keep mine too, but it's already at the shop to sell. I really like how you did the numbered drawers. It was fun seeing somebody elses take on this.
