I wanted to do something clean, classy and elegant with this desk. You can’t get much more classic than gray paint and Java Stain. I used a deep gray paint; Queenstown Gray for the drawers and the base. I then stained the top and the top middle drawer in Java. I love how the single stained drawer breaks up all the gray paint. The hardware is original but I spruced them up with some gold spray paint to make them pop against the dark gray.
