Sneak Peek of Secretary Desk

Today's post is a sneak peek of the secretary desk that I painted. I actually painted it a while ago with the intent of getting my work space off my kitchen table and using the desk as my new mini-office. Of course there was nothing wrong with using the kitchen table, except my stuff would end up being spread out all over the table. Some people in my family found that annoying.

Before: unpainted secretary desk
Before: Vintage secretary desk.

But I never got around to actually making the move. Blame it on being change resistant! If you follow me on Facebook then you know I needed to refinish my kitchen table, so that was the incentive for me to make my move.

I'll need to tidy up and get some better lighting before I take photos of the final reveal. But in the meantime, here are some casual shots of my new work space.

The upper portion of the desk has shelves with glass cabinet doors. I'm using this area to store some of my staging items.

You might notice that there is a lack of messy stacks of paper in my work space. (Thank you for noticing!) I've been working very hard on going paperless! I do have some papers that I keep in a portable filing cabinet. It's actually more like a bag rather than a cabinet. But unfortunately it doesn't match my new desk color, so I'll need to give that an update so it doesn't clash. In the meantime, I do use the storage drawers on the bottom portion of the desk for papers and other items.

You may have also noticed my clever subliminal advertising trick of using my website in the photographs. :-)
