a personal secretary.
And she's a pretty one!
But she didn't look like this
when I got her.
She was battered and banged
and beyond just refinishing because
of deep gouges and holes that
needed to be filled.
Here are some closeups of how she looked.
She was already undressed before
I remembered to take pictures!
Inside she was NOT PRETTY either.
The inside is much prettier now
with Valspar's blue haze paint.
The drawers needed some serious sanding.
The hardware was not salvageable.
It had rusted through in some spots.
She's got pretty hardware now!
I love this piece and decided to keep it
SO-I gave my daughter
my other secretary that I bought
when she was a baby.
And now this one is
MINE ALL MINE!
Yep--I made that sweet little
Now HERE is ANOTHER secretary
I would like to make over.
I see she has the BLUE going on already-
maybe I can just add a coat of white paint?
ps. Just so you know I am working
like a crazy woman to get my
which I hope to open this weekend!
