Bathroom Storage Using the Upper Half of an Antique Secretary

2 Hours
We initially purchased the upper half of an antique secretary at auction. My plan was to use it in the garage as storage unit for my gardening supplies. But once I freshened it up, this piece turned out too pretty for such a utilitarian purpose. Instead, I used it for some much needed bathroom storage.

    Hi. I was wondering if there's another way for me to read this full tutorial ? It's not letting me copy & paste 😔

    This is a great idea! But the link to your site does not work or is broken.
    Can you please post a live link or photos of the project?
    Thank you so very much,

    I like what you have done paint wise with the piece. I think I would put legs on it to bring it up off the floor. A nice set of bowed antique chair legs on the front with straight one on the rear would look great IMO.
