Teal and Gold Desk of Dreams

By English Burton in Mount Pleasant, SC.

This desk was rescued from the side of the road and transformed into a vibrant, unique piece that stands out in any room. It was painted with Dixie Belle’s “Palmetto,” a rich, deep teal. The sides of the drawers were left as they were to create a beautiful warm contrast along with the legs that were stained with Minwax mission oak. As the finishing touch Dixie Belle gilding wax in warm gold was applied to the hardware, giving it a brilliant pop of color.
