Red Bird

This week has been a great week!  I've sold a few pieces, the weather has been gorgeous, and I worked on this secretary desk that came together beautifully.

When I found this desk at a garage sale, it looked like this.

I forgot to snap a "before" picture before I got started so the missing drawer in the picture is actually sitting on the ground covered in red paint.  It was a decent looking desk, but somebody had tried their hand at painting and aging it and hadn't quite pulled it off.  One glance and I just knew it had to be red!

I love the cute little feet!

And look at these super cute knobs I found at Michael's for $1.50 each! 

I knew I wanted to paint something on the door, but what?  When I found the bird stencil at HL I knew it belonged on my little red desk.

I am so in love with this sweet desk!  What do you think?
