I have had this piece in my inventory for over 2 years, and was completly uninspired by it.  Until a client asked if i had any desk available.  She wanted to purchase one for her daughter who had just graduated from Law school.  Her words were "something curvy and feminine".  I suddenly became inspired.  My client wanted a deep navy, deeper than coastal blue.  I mixed 3 parts coastal blue to 1 part lamp black to achieve this classy color.  The end result was this piece of beauty.  I used rub n'buff to achieve the coppery gold hardware color.
