Secretaries are regal in bearing and offer great flexibility with shelves for books or keepsakes peeking out from behind gracious doors, a desk that folds out when you need it and closes to hide your papers when finished plus three large drawers for storage.
The owner of this secretary received it as a gift from her neighbor, a gracious ninety-something woman.
The piece had been well loved and needed a face lift for the owner’s new home.
A creamy off-white shows off the nice lines of the piece and the gray interior color helps to emphasize the grill pattern on the cabinet doors.
I’m smitten with the Secretary, having painted three of them in the past six months. There is a smaller blue Secretary for sale at The Plaid Rabbit if this inspires you to get one for your home.
