A beautiful vintage secretaire

As soon as I saw this piece I knew I wanted it and exactly what I wanted to do with it. This is a piece I would keep if I didn't have bills to pay :) I love how it turned out. I know I've said it before but how good is paint.

Even two secret compartments for money and passports.

For this piece I have used Annie Sloan Chalk paint but mixed the colours for a unique look.  I also replaced the glass in the doors with wire. The glass was a bit weird in my opinion - it bulged out and I didn't like it.


Love the curved serpentine front.

I'm off to pick up some more lovely pieces. Have a great day

  1. It is a wonderful piece and the painting was so good for it. I love the cute little door inside and almost expect a little fairy to pop out!
