She's a looker alright!
The hardware is ANTIQUE with protectors on the inside of the drawers.
A metal cap fits over the post and nut to protect the drawer contents.
But I hope you didn't think I found her this way, you know me better then that.
I built the upper portion for this simple maple secretary using two discarded cabinet doors,
and some lumber from a kitchen table I recent stole the legs from.
It is secured with metal rods on the back side and can be unscrewed to separate.
She has a larger then average pull down at 16" deep,
that's why I chose this piece to work with.
The pink is a blend of pure white and emperors silk ASCP and waxed with minwax natural.
Everything displays great against the soft pink,
and it's a fun color to have peeking through the glass doors.
