When I got the secretaire, it was painted a dusty gold colour, had angled feet with discs on the bottom and the same style of discs on the drawer handles. I painted it white and changed the feet and knobs.
The secretaire is in my master bedroom. I use it to store all my jewellery and bits and pieces.
I have lined the drawer and shelves with some pretty paper.
I like that I have pieces of furniture that have a family history and that mean something to me. I'd like to think that Gran is happy that the desk she sat at for so many hours of her life is still being used and loved.
