A Fresh Perspective.

I bought this secretary’s desk a few months ago on CraigList.  Mike had to pick it up for me and when he got it home it was covered in scratches and top spindle fell off.   I paid about $200 and, I was then convinced that I was a sucker.   (Sorry, the only picture that I have is from the actual CL posting.)
I was determined to turn this piece of trash into a treasure.  And finally, I found my inspiration via Pinterest.
It was the perfect color composition for the palette that I selected for our guest bedroom.
Here she is.. all prettied up.
 The interior is Autumn Red by Benjamin Moore and the exterior is Blackthorn by Duron.
More pics and resources on this room to come!

    looks so amazing, well done. I would never have thought about a splash of colour inside. Great find on pinterest to inspire you to do this. Looks beautiful. I need something like this for all my vintage tea cups, saucers, trinkets etc.

    Could you please email me the site you got the scarf frame? For 20 years I have wanted to frame a special scarf, but have not found the frame. You did it for me though. I love yours!!!

    The secretary is absolutely gorgeous!
