Me and Heather have been working on him and the china cabinet lately. The china cabinet is done (can be seen in previous post).
I found out the other night that this secretary is about a hundred years old!! I'm always super excited to find that out about a piece of furniture I have. This one is made of walnut and was made by The Ebert Furniture Company.
I decided to paint him in Miss Mustard Seed's Shutter Gray milk paint.
I couldn't work on it For a day or so (you know, toddler, my regular full time job, and sometimes mommy is just tired!). When I came back to it, omg!, you should have seen what this milk paint did all by itself! I could already tell the chipping thing was going to be gorgeous!!
After his second coat of paint I waited til next day, praying the flaking would still come through. It didn't let me down!!
He's waxed down too :)
Can you tell the difference? The top part is where I've already applied wax, bottom part I haven't waxed yet in these pictures.
And Mr. Ebert's secretary desk is complete!!
