This piece was a redo of a redo. I found it at a garage sale and had to have it. Originally made in Italy i loved the curves of the desk. The legs unfortunately were unsalvageable so I added all new legs to the piece. I originally painted it a totally different color but was just not feeling it. This piece needed something different. In comes Lamp Black Milk Paint and it totally felt right. I painted the exterior with the Lamp Black Milk Paint and kept it clean and modern. I added a pop of color for the inside of the desk in Persian Blue Milk Paint. I loved the contrast with the two colors. Finally I added High Performance Top Coat in Satin for the perfect shine. I cleaned up the drawer pulls and added a little rub and buff in Antique Gold. They looked gorgeous against the deep black. It turned out beautifully and I couldn't be happier.
