I’m still crazy about my antique secretary/desk. Thanks to many suggestions, I re-stained the inside and used polyurethane to seal the wood. I’m pleased how it turned out. I’ve added some fall goodies on the inside of the hutch, like acorn spheres, leaves and pods. The leaves traveled with me all the way from Celebration, Fl., I thought they were pretty and generous in size - a free souvenir if you will, just like the sea shells found at Cocoa Beach.
My pewter collection came out of storage … I like displaying it inside the hutch and adding seasonal touches.
I’m always on a look-out for more books too!
The small bell in the center of the shelf was a recent purchase at an estate sale…hand-painted by a sweet lady who enjoyed painting ceramics and china. So glad I found this little keepsake.
I will keep it in the hutch during Christmas as well, may have to add a pretty ribbon to the top.
How is your decorating coming along? Do you add seasonal decor to book-shelves and/or hutches?
I hope you’re enjoying the beauty of the season inside or outside and have the best weekend ever!!
