Love and Dream-Antique Secretary by Roz Robertson

Hello re·designers! Today, we are sharing a gorgeous antique secretary that has been given new life and it was done so beautifully! Roz Robertson of New Old Finds, has a way of adding the Decor Transfers™ to her projects to not only add design detail, but unique designs at that. She mixes and matches them together to create her own designs that work perfectly with the unique pieces she finds.

Love & Dream “I really wanted to do this piece justice, it’s a hand built secretary desk and there is an inscription on the back, it’s very very well made but lacked oomph so I have prettied her up and I think she is a doll now and would make a wondrous statement piece. New blue and white knobs were added to the doors and they work perfectly….”

“Finished in this wonderful Navy blue, floral transfers in gorgeous whites and blue all compliment the natural wood…”  The Love and Dream Decor Transfer™(637033) is white and measures 22 x 28 inches, so it shows up especially well on dark backgrounds .

Then Roz added floral cut outs from the French Ceramics (635831) over it to add more color and give it more personality. So, yes! You can layer our transfers together and Roz does that beautifully!

Here is a great close up of the layered transfers-they look so awesome together against the Navy Blue background. The possibilities are endless when it comes to combining the transfers.

“The really fabulous thing about this secretary is the storage. There are 3 shelves inside and the immense space means (like most of my pieces) it is super versatile for any room in the house! I can see this in an entry, a hallway, an office or even a bedroom.” ~Roz
