Secretary makeover with dry brushing

A friendly neighbor gave me this awesome secretary they didn't want.  They said if I didn't want it, it was going to goodwill...What?
I'll take it!
I dry brushed it with grey and then again with white, and this is how she turned out:

I like the finish and the secretary fits perfectly in this little nook.  I am still debating on whether to paint it a different color.  My walls are such a pale yellow and I am not sold on the 2 colors together.

  1. Love this! I pinned it to my "Painted Furniture" board. :) I can't believe someone was willing to just give this away - such a gorgeous piece! (Visiting you via the Just Something I Whipped Up link party!)
