Antique Secretary and Hutch for a Fundraiser

Saturday, 22 October 2011

Friends, it has been too long! I have been completing projects...refinishing old doors to become desks, making old closet doors into room dividers...but nothing really blog worthy. But this one is and I am excited to be back!

Back in April, I donated my time to refinish 2 pieces for our preschool fundraiser. I'd never done this before and didn't know exactly how it'd work out...I was questioning whether or not someone would even want to bid at all. There were 2 certificates...one for a large piece of the bidders choosing (dining table, dresser, etc) and one for a small piece (end table, chair, etc).

The winner of the large piece brought me this beautiful secretary and hutch in early September:

This piece will be put in the owner's Cape Cod home and she already had a plan...complete with colors picked out! Linen White and Appalachian Trail (both by BM). It is lightly distressed and we decided glass pulls would be best for this little beauty. Here she is...ready for her east coast debeut!

I still have a few tweaks to do before she's totally finished, but I hadn't written in sooo long, I had to share it tonight. Thanks for hanging in with me!

If you haven't heard, Julia at 551 East Furniture Design is hosting an AMAZING link party this month. It's called Habitat Heroes and the idea is to get peeps like us to restore a piece for charity. I know what you're thinking...it takes time and $$ to restore a piece. But it's one piece and think what a $4.00 can of spray paint can do for a little side table that you got for $5.00 at a garage sale? You donate that to Goodwill and they sell it for $20? That's a profit for them and only $9.00 for you. Aren't I good at math? ;)

Seriously though, think about doing a piece and linking up...you'll feel good about it!
