Another painted vintage secretaire

I had such a fantastic response to the vintage secretaire I recently painted so when I came across this vintage one made in Italy I decided to buy it. I took a bit of a chance on this as it came locked and without keys. I was lucky that I had a lovely vintage key at home that fit it. Phew.

This piece was made in Italy. It’s so tall and narrow so I think would be a great piece for a little corner of a lounge room or even kitchen nook. I painted it all in a beautiful taupe grey and the interior in a sea foam green.

I’m really happy with how this turned out and it was snapped up right away with lots of interested parties. Lauren sent her helpful friend to pick it up within 3 hours of commenting sold, love a quick turnaround. She was absolutely thrilled with it and loved all the care I’d taken painting and restoring this piece.

It seems that these are really popular pieces. So I’ll definitely be doing more of them. Lots of work but don’t they look fantastic
