Pretty Pink Secretary

 I will admit it. I'm a Craigslistaholic. I'm on there everyday. Looking for the sweet and cheap. On this day I found it. $10 for this schweet baby! After whooping it up, I yelled for Big Daddy to hit the road. Ladies if your husband is like mine you know what happened next. But the threat of bodily harm won out and off we went.
Here she is. Pretty in Pink. 
                           I gussied her up with some homemade chalkpaint. 
                                   Took about three coats. 
            I then put a brown glaze on her to age the white chalkpaint                    
                          I removed the handles and added cloth drawer pulls. 
                       Made from the same material I added to the back.
             I wanted the finials to stand out so I chalkpainted them a pink, 
                         then a light sweeping of the white chalkpaint.
                   Replaced the dull fake brass knobs with pink glass knobs 
                                     I bought from Hobby Lobby
                       This lady goes beautifully in my guest bedroom. 
                                           And for less than $20 
                             I took a boring and brown behemoth 
                                        and turned her into a 
                                       Sweet Pink Lady!
