My mother bought this very same desk from the unfinished furniture store when I was young.
She stained it walnut, gave it a coat of poly and it became "her office". Her sanctuary. We were NOT to touch "Mom's desk."
Last week I found its doppelganger in Newport, RI at a yard sale.
I picked up some rubbed bronze bin pulls at my favorite big box store and gave the desk three coats of Annie Sloan's "Arles" paint- a color I've been dying to try out.
Here is my version of my mother's desk.
I LOVE how it turned out and hope you do too!!
Have a great weekend!!
