Painted Secretary Desk

Here's hoping that everyone had a fun and safe Memorial Day weekend. Summer is definitely here in Florida, it is hot, hot and more hot with temps in the upper 90's. Add in the humidity and you've got one hot, steamy mess.

For a quick update to a secretary desk I've had I decided paint was again to the rescue. This is the before.

It is a pretty common style of desk with three large drawers on the bottom.

I again used Dixie Belle Paint in Drop-Cloth for a quick and easy makeover.

I love having drawer fronts painted a different color or left in their original state.

These drawer fronts were painted with latex oops paint.

I left the inside unpainted except for the flip desk top.

I did distress slightly on the edges of desk and drawers.

Original hardware was put back on after completed.
Clear coat was applied as a sealer.

This was a easy update for a dated piece.

Here's to having a great Summer!

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. paint does wonders huh? this is the same as my tall dresser except in reverse blue on the body white on the drawer fronts, you desk looks wonderful now xx

  2. Oh, such an improvement! The dark color was so somber and dull.
