While browsing through one of the back rooms (full of furniture) I spotted the above secretary and "fell in love." I almost didn't look at the price tag as I just knew it would be way out of my price range, but imagine my surprise when I checked and found it to be only $48! I didn't purchase it that day, as I like to think over "big" purchases and make sure it's what I really want.
After thinking it about it over the week-end (and talking with a friend who said --"Call and tell them to hold it --- I'll give you the money if you really want it!") -- I decided to use the rest of my birthday money on it.
I put it in my dining room -- and I'm lovin' the way it looks with the colors and style of my decorating!
Here's an up-close view with the cabinet doors open.
That tall, skinny tree to the right was given to me by the same friend who offered to buy the secretary for me --- I set it up on a box and covered the box with an old "Kitchen Proverbs" piece of material sent to me by my friend Abby! (Don't I have the best of friends?!?!)
