So I have had this desk had been sitting in my garage for almost 2 years.
My Aunt rescued it from her neighbor when she put it on the side of the road for the garbage man to haul away. I was dreading painting it because of all of the cubby holes but one day I pulled it out and tackled it! Actually it really wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Though I am glad I waited to paint it because I have learned a lot over the years which made this project easier than I thought.
I started by sanding and priming the desk.
I then used a dark teal spray paint on the cubby holes to add a pop of color. The body of the desk is painted antique white, lightly distressed and waxed for protection.
I found these bronze and diamond handles at Hobby Lobby and thought they would be perfect to finish off the desk. I used small glass-like knobs for the smaller drawers.
