This is what the desk looked like before:
I removed all the hardware and stripped several layers of paint from them.
I decided to actually leave them the original gold.
I sanded, primed and painted the desk a pretty shade of grey. I painted the inside of the drawers white.
Then I taped an outline on top of the desk and painted that with gold liquid leaf.
And here it is:
|you can see the painted lamp here|
I lined the drawers with Laura Ashley Drawer Liner that I found at TJ Maxx. It looks black in the picture but is actually a pretty dark grey.
I'm really happy with the outcome, don't you think so? And now it is looking for a good home ;)
Talk to you soon fellow webbers und guten Tag.
