beachy desk makeover

happy Monday everyone!
i started painting this desk yesterday and finished it off this morning.
i thought alot about what i would do colourwise while painting on the 1st
2 coats of undercoat, and decided it had to be done up in 2 contrasting colours.
you can see the inlay texture through the paint too.
and of course sanded the edges to allow the original timber through
i was glad to find the 4th drawer knob hidden at the back of the drawer,
so popped them back on to keep a bit of an industrial look going.
what an awesome desk for a young boy.
i would have loved to dress it up inside, but it was far too heavy
to drag inside. it be listed on eBay soon

desk before....
