Painted Desk

I haven't posted photos of a project in awhile, so I thought I would quit being such a $lacka$$  post one today.

Didn't take any "before" shots, mainly because of the aforementioned "$lacka$$"  problem.

I kept the 'gold' trim and just touched it up a little.  The rest of the desk I scraped down to bare wood, because the off-white paint someone used didn't adhere, so it had a bunch of naked spots.  I painted it a light grayish-blue.  Not sure if that's one of the fifty shades.

It's a great size for a smaller space, like the office I would have in my perfect life.
 I am hooking up here:

Primitive and Proper
and at Emily's!
and at HodgePodge! And I'm at Wow Us Wednesdays!

That gold trim is pretty much rocking my world.

PS - I had so much fun hanging out with you at Haven!

That last comment was from me, but I was signed into my husband's google account. He doesn't tend to get his world rocked by gold trim like I do.
