Au Naturale

Well, I have finally made a decision about my secretary. I bought this off Craigslist months ago and intended always to paint it some fun color. I could never decide what color to choose while we were at the old house and figured I'd wait until we moved to choose a color that worked in the new space. Again, I was stuck!! I could not decide.

I was that girl who when friends came over I'd ask them what I should do. Everyone told me I should leave it as it was. {Maybe they were tired of hearing me ask!} Though I had never intended to leave it in it's original state... I'm going to do it! Maybe one day the right color will hit me and I'll make a change. But for now, I'm pretty excited about not having to get in to the nooks and crannies with a paint brush. :)

What do you think? Did I make the right decision? Or do you have a suggestion for me? Should I spray paint the hardware at least? Something about it is still not "right".

Yep, that's a kids cup in the background. Lazy me thought I could strategically crop the photo without cleaning the table off. Oops :)


  1. I am not a good one to ask because I have the SAME dilemma! lol I have left mine natural for two years, but I am thinking about painting it. I have seen them painted and think, I LOVE that! I am thinking some cream color with a stain washed over it and maybe paint the interior another color....just thinking...

    But yours does look so pretty!

    I am no help at all!

  2. If you just want a pop of color, you could line the back of the bookshelves with a pretty wallpaper, fabric, or scrapbook paper. Tape would probably hold so it's not permanent.

  3. I too live in a neutral world. I have embraced
