This Edwardian secretaire was a labour of love.
I really wanted to transform it from its original dour state to a piece that would shine in a room.
I chose Autentico’s Wilderness chalk paint for the exterior under which I painted Sailor Blue as the two colours work brilliantly together.
Once the piece was waxed I lightly distressed the paintwork so that hints of the blue paint would show through.
The interior I painted using Annie Sloan’s fabulous Primer Red.
The perfect contrast against the green and I managed to source a key tassel in the same Primer Red colourway.
The original leather insert was badly damaged so I replaced it with a piece of navy felt and edged it with a lovely vintage green braid.
