    I have a secretary desk that looks like a twin of your original. It has been in my family for generations. Although, I love what you did to change it, I could never imagine covering up my authentic desk in such excellent condition.

    This was a special secretaire to start with as it has great bones, however, I love what you have achieved, it's simply beautiful and looks so much more at home in it's new guise. Thank you for sharing.
