Winner! A Classy Classic

By Courtney Cole, Owner at Twig & Thyme Design in Sterling, VA.

A classic look for a classic beauty! Enjoyed in the family since 1937, this drop front secretary desk was ready for a timeless makeover. Her badly worn finish was cleaned, sanded, repaired and prepped for paint! We sprayed layers of silky smooth General Finishes Black Poly in Satin on her exterior, carefully sanding between layers for a flawless look and feel! We completmented her exterior with a creamy Antique White Milk Paint interior. We topped her off with a layer of Pre-Cat Laquer in Satin for a bit of added sheen and protection.
