Hometalk :: Repainted Secretary Desk I have the twin to the bottom section, but haven't been able to find a topper. Not a huge fan of painting over good wood, but maybe I'll just refinish it in my "free" time, after the garden is ready for spring and the spring cleaning is done. You see why I've never for the last 25 years found the "time" to refinish it. It has been too low on the to do list....... Maybe later.
prepped this piece with some fissure, a faux finishing product, created by Wood Icing, that leaves the end product with a crackled finish. They painted the inside of the secretary in Duck Egg Blue, and the exterior in Versailles. Then they gave it a coat of Annie Sloan’s clear soft wax, which they buffed off, and added some distressing in places. The result was a refreshed secretary perfect for a chic office or living room.
