The finished Secretary/ cabinet.
My daughter loves all the drawers for storing small household items and labeled each drawer using a chalk marker. The back of each door is painted with chalk paint and can be used for memos.
This pic shows the starting of the refurbishing. (Somehow missed getting the before pic)
This Secretary/ Cabinet belonged to my in-laws many years ago and had been kept in a garage for the last few years. It was not in good shape and very musty. I had to spend a good deal of time cleaning it and knew I would have to do some kind of stenciling to cover up the damaged places on the front of the cabinet doors. My husband had to put a new frame around each cabinet door.
I wanted it to look like a screen type pattern. It was not an easy task and it took a lot of detail work. I had to hand paint some of the parts close to the edge.
This piece had a lot of drawers. I cleaned each one and painted both the drawers and the shelves that hold the drawers to freshen it up. I also lined each drawer with a piece of decorative felt.
This was on Christmas Day when we gave it to our daughter and son in law.
