White and Blue Secretary

When I first started painting furniture, My budget for furniture was pretty small.  I would mostly stick to end tables and other small pieces.  Now that my business has grown, I only buy furniture that is good quality.  I don't mind spending money to make sure that I am putting the best product out there that I can.  I have found some amazing pieces lately.

I found this piece on one of my FB groups.  I loved it right away.  I was so lucky to snag it up.  A lot of people wanted it!  It pays to check often!


Before

It was in great condition, so the only thing I had to do to was wipe it down.  Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy!

After!

I love how this turned out.  In fact I love it so much, that It's in my house.  I don't normally keep my pieces, but this one kinda stole my heart!


I painted the body in Annie Sloan's Old White.  Let me just say that I struggle every time I paint with white.  I end up having to paint at least 4 coats.  With Annie though, only 2 coats.  Great coverage.  It's the only white I will ever use again.


For the drawers, I mixed up a custom color.  





Have any of you ever loved a piece so much that you just couldn't sell?
