I remember this secretary being in my Grandmother's bedroom growing up and recently found out my Uncle had it in his barn. My mom asked if I was interested in it and I immediately said yes! I replaced the back with bead board and added doors. It had doors and a desk cover (not sure what you call it) at one time, but not when I got it. I had my husband make simple door frames and stapled hardware cloth onto the back. I may put a desk cover back on at some point, but for now I like it open. It now lives in our guest room. I first painted it in Graphite then painted over that in Duck Egg mixed with Paris Grey and Graphite and sealed with clear wax.
One of these days I am going to learn how to take good photographs, but for now it's just the run of the mill point and shoot pics. :)
