This solid wood secretary desk was built in the late 1930's. A vintage country facelift was provided by creating an oil rubbed bronze finish using metallic bronze paint and black glaze. The sides of the desk were embellished using a worn harlequin pattern in black with the odd touch of rustic gold. A beautiful print of Wild Horses was added to the exteriour of the desk drop front. Black glaze and dark wax were used to add wear and depth to the horses, creating a more time worn effect.
The interiour of the desk was patched and sanded then painted in a cabinet quality black paint. The back panel was painted in a black and white mudcloth pattern to add some visual interest and country whimsy to the storage cubbies. The original hinges were removed and cleaned, they glide and work well but maintain their vintage charm.
The drawer interiours were cleaned, sanded and treated using a protective wood conditioning oil. The sides were painted in a black and white mudcloth pattern to match the desk interiour and the edges were gilded in gold to tie in all the colour details.
