This is my first furniture post, although you can certainly expect MANY to come. This is due to what I am sure my husband would call a "problem" of picking up trashed furniture off the side of the road. I never quite have a plan or place in mind for furniture I find, I just always know I HAVE to have it! I love taking old, ugly, destroyed things and making them beautiful once again.
My latest victim was this miniature secretary's desk. When I saw it I thought it would be perfect for my daughter someday. My husband had a hard time seeing past the amount of sanding it would require, but I was not deterred.
To finish off the desk, I painted the inside of the drawer with the pear color and added a crystal knob.
