Beautiful serpentine front secretary desk with hand painted image

We found an old secretary desk that did not sell at an estate sale. It was in very bad shape, the sides were all split up and the bottom drawer was shot. Years of the bottom, with no legs,  being on a damp floor had left their marks.



With a vision and a lot of work, we were able to rescue this beautiful piece.

 

After all the structural repairs, and creating new legs, and finial. The painting and staining were followed with coats of polyurethane to seal up the wood. The drop down desk front has an French image from the Graphic Fairy hand painted on it. 

 



It is now ready for years of great service, for some lucky family.
