I’ve always liked idea of having a secretary. (The desk, not the person. Although, both are nice actually. . . ) They’re classic pieces that give you height, storage, and a little function, without the bulk. I spent part of my weekend giving this one a makeover:
I used glossy black paint and the insides are now a very light gray. I decided to leave the original hardware as is. It’s a little tarnished but I like the contrast against the glossy finish.
I picked up a new piece of glass for it this morning and plan to take it over to my booth later today. I’ll show you more before and after pictures of the entire piece later this week, once I get it all set up and styled there.
In the meantime, Here are a few of my favorite ways to decorate with with a secretary:
1. As a bedroom writing desk.
2. As a family command center/display area in a small spot.
3. In a neutral color, paired with a colorful chair.
4. In lieu of a nightstand.
5. As a focal piece, anchoring a gallery wall.
