Creamy Two Tone Desk Refresh


I just rescued this classic desk earlier this week. What's not to love about it?? It is solid wood, the drawers function like new, all the hardware was intact...it's a beautiful piece. The problem...someone had stained it so dark and covered it with so much varnish that you couldn't even see the wood grain.
It was suffocating under all those layers of yuck. Time for a makeover!
My inspiration came from a similar desk I saw on Pinterest a few months back. Someone had done their desk in a two tone, blue and cream body with a really dark stained top. I loved the look that I thought I would try something along that line. I opted to go with something a bit more neutral, ASCP Country Grey and Old White. The Country Grey is really a warm cream and it looks amazing with the Old White and the rich chocolate stained top.
