No, not a secretary "person",
a secretary "desk".
A friend of a friend called me about painting their desk.
It's not very big, but it has lots of nooks and crannies...
I worked on this piece everyday for a week!
At first, I thought the secretary should not get a makeover.
She was a natural beauty.
But, she turned out quite lovely with her makeover...
The paint color is Sherwin William's, Anjou Pear.
I antiqued it with a raw umber glaze and finished her off with a couple of coats of polyurethane.
I have to admit, even though at first I thought she shouldn't be painted, I do like her better after her makeover.
What about you? Do you prefer natural wood or painted?
