Inspired Secretary......

A Secretary is a piece of furniture that I have always wanted.  I finally got one and was inspired to paint it when I saw this on MMS blog.  Here is the before shot.

I painted it in Annie Sloan chalk paint, a mix of Provence and Paris Grey.  As I was painting one of the glass panes broke and so I replaced it with chicken wire.

I used rubb and buff in Grecian Gold for the handles and chicken wire.  I left the inside the original color, because I had no desire to paint the cubbies and I loved the look from my inspiration.

The pictures do not do it justice because I am sooo happy how it turned out.

I think Bob Ross would call the glass breaking a happy little accident ... It completely changes the look to not have trim pieces where the glass would have been. I did a double take because I thought it was a different piece!
