Today I want to share the beginning process of the secretary I am working on. The original factory finish was pretty but it was a little plastic looking. Too perfect. Also, the colors weren't working in the Breakfast Room.
I tried on the new (antique) hardware and the flame finials. It is currently painted in Annie Sloan Coco but I am going over it in Graphite and solely Dark Wax tonight, then I will add the decoupage panels. I still don't know what color I will paint the interior. It's a toss up between Annie Sloan Duck Egg, Louis Blue or Aubusson. Once I install the panels I will have a better idea.
Aren't the tulips beautiful?
This is a better view of the hardware. I have aged the brassy escutcheons with burnt umber paint.
I am excited about this one!
I hope everything goes as planned!
