I ended up doing what I always do. I painted the exterior of the desk white and gave it a gray paint job on the inside. To make it a little more exciting, I lined the drawers with some wrapping paper and added some bright accessories that I can swap out for anything else that I'm loving, whenever the mood strikes.
So, here is another white, neutral makeover by me. The good news is that I love this little secretary desk. It reminds me of my Grandma Esther, who had one too, and filled it with pretty things and special memories. Mine holds all of my favorite treasures and is a fun place to sit and write a letter, surf the Internet, or make a to do list. I hope you like it, too!
Just to refresh your memory, because this desk has been on the ol' to do list for a long time, here are some pictures of what the desk looked like before the makeover.
Here are some pictures of the desk after the makeover. Actually, I lied. Here are a ton of after pictures. Enjoy!
Thank you for reading! I'll be back soon.
