I bought this little secretary desk thingy at Salvation Army. I envisioned it being a simple paint job. However, when I started sanding it, the sides cracked & it fell apart…literally. Great. I had to rebuild almost the whole thing. The top portion is pretty sturdy but the bottom was not built well. Very frustrating. It took me much longer than I had planned but I got it re-built & painted.
We found the wall hangings above this piece in China. The wooden figurines are from Cairo(I believe). The framed postcard says “love you from any place in the world” & was sent to us as a part of a wedding gift from Sarah when she was living in Thailand.
Helpful tip of the day: if you smash your finger with a screw & it’s bleeding all over your project, tape it up with whatever is handy – painter’s tape pictured below.
