We purchased this desk a few years ago...
I've been using it as my desk at the studio
The finish wasn't terrible,
so I left it wood...
Of course, it was eventually destined for paint!
We brought it to the new store as "filler" for the front room
while we were working...so when people peeked in, it would look nicely staged
Our goal at the new store is to always have a "work--in-progress"
so client's can see how the products we use work
So this desk became today's "work-in-progress"!
I used Credenza from Amy Howard at Home
(One Step Paint)
Gold Leaf gilds the hardware as well as the bottom edge
The entire piece has the most gorgeous, subtle shimmer...
accomplished by mixing Diamond Dust Mica Powder with wax
