Pretty White Secretary..

So this is the secretary that I picked up for free from the curb. The best kind of stuff. Well it has sat on my porch for about a year now. Well now it's all done and here it is. I painted it white and sanded it down. I glazed the drawer fronts with a turquoise glaze and absolutely did not like it. I mixed up some white glaze and put that on over it.  I waited for it to dry and resanded it than I waxed the whole thing. The inside part proved to be a huge pain in the butt. I was so ready to get it done. I put some small legs on it that I had and some paper stock on the back for some color. The best part is that I didn't pay one cent for this project. Everything that I used I already had around my house. Not bad right..


  1. Love it! I've seen secretary pieces before, but never one like yours. Plus, free is always such an awesome feeling!


  2. Thank you and yes it is. I just love getting free stuff. It's funny what people throw out as garbage. I guess that saying is true.

  3. what a unique desk! i have never seen one like it- love that shape and the colors are so fun!

  4. Somebody threw that out?! Love the turquoise hardware.
