Antique Secretary Desk

This little antique secretary desk belonged to my clients grandfather. She had fond memories of him sitting there doing his work when she was a child. My client aquired this desk some years ago and wanted to have it match with her master bedroom furniture.

Using this piece for a vanity she decided it needed to be a lovely artistic statement. Family heirlooms are my favorite!

My client matched her colors using Behr Paints color swatches and I had Sherwin-Williams color match those swatches in the products that I use. Refinished in Gem Silica, Honey Tea and Roasted Squash. The original hardware revamped in Oil Rubbed Bronze. I refinished the inside of the desk in Gem Silica for a surprise POP of color. Using Honey Tea and Roasted Squash I did a blunt blending in a horizontal line that matches her bedroom furniture. Distressed the entire piece to help give a finish blend as well as tie this piece in with the other pieces this little lovie will be sharing space with.
