Hello, I found this desk at my neighbor's garage sale and want to fix it up to look pretty. Does anyone have any ideas? I originally wanted to do robin's egg blue and red stencil accents, but the room it is going in is a light to med. blue already (doubt hubby will want it painted) I also considered mod podge ideas and white with some other modern design type stencil on top. Any ideas?? Thanks!!

Well, my vision is similar of what you see on Houzz craft rooms, with one side of the room
having long table space with drawers and cabinets/storage above. where I want to put the desk is on a short wall inbetween 2 windows (pretty much the wall is the 2 windows and the space in the middle) and put a painted peg board above and accessories to hold various things. It would also be a good space for my kids to work at as well. I know it is hard to visualize without a photo of the room. I think I need to stick with maybe a white color and make it sort of shabby chic maybe, but I am drawn to bold colors, tastefully and simply done.
