Upon opening the desk, I found many papers and receipts dating from the 1940’s, all from Brookline, MA. I even found a very old social security card belonging to a woman named Baker. I wonder if she would like how the desk looks today?
Oh, those curves… I painted the inside the sweet Annie Sloan’s “Antoinette”. So soft and feminine against the white…I added a stencil to give it a little bit of whimsy…The inside of the desk has three little drawers, a center compartment and two secret little hideaway sections (the little pillars on either side of the door). Two of the pulls are missing and I am on the lookout to find replacements.
