One of my first attempts at a furniture makeover was a beautiful mahogany secretary desk. My parents purchased it in 1950 right after they were married. (I still have the receipt!) It was damaged during a move at some point and to hide the damage someone used wood grain contact paper in the back of the piece. Well, in time this piece became mine. I love it and have always had it in my home but for some unknown reason I never removed the contact paper. Contact paper!!! What was I thinking??? You could tell from a mile away what it was! Anyway, a couple years ago, I fixed the back and painted the inside black. At the time of loved it.
After a while, the black seemed to dark. Enter fabric backing………
That was good for a while, but a little limiting. Time to finally give chalk paint a try. I love it! I think it will stay this way for a while. Just keep trying til you get it right (for you)!!
Thanks for stopping by.
