Usually, when I find a piece of furniture, I know exactly what colors I will paint it, which hardware will be used, etc. Not with this secretary! After much ado, I have made a decision! I thought the day would never come!
I have decided on the color...finally! With the help of pixlr I am able to better envision my goal. The secretary is currently painted in Annie Sloan Coco. I will repaint the entire piece in Annie Sloan French Linen, including the finials. (It's the best I can do, Betsy! I cannot figure out how to cut them down!)
The grisaille panels will be antiqued so they lose the glare.
This is the third set of posters I bought online! More on that later.
The inside will be painted Annie Sloan Louis Blue and Dark Wax!
I had better get to work!
Once it arrives, (from ebay) this mirror frame will have antique mirror added and then secured under the arch above the doors.
Deciding on which direction to take this piece, including color, was the most difficult part. Now I can have some fun!
I should be finished soon!
