This little vintage desk was BRIGHT yellow when it arrived at our workshop. It was peeling and chipping in many areas, which exposed the dark green paint underneath. The paint felt like it had been applied with a heavy texture roller, it was rough and uneven. It really needed some TLC. We sanded it a TON to try and smooth it out as much as possible. It was then painted Black, a Dunn Edwards color, in a satin finish. The hardware was left original. I love the contrast of the black desk and the metal hardware. I think it turned out really cute!
