When we were first married (many MANY years ago) we did almost the exact same thing. We bought a wooden desk (not nearly so ornate as yours) at Salvation Army and repainted it almost exactly that same turquoise color, except we painted the drawers a greenish olive color, and we still have and use that desk today!

Welcome to posting!
I love the colour that you chose.
and the hardware looks really good with it too. I like the contrast of the white against the turquoise

This looks great. The details on those drawers are fantastic.
I've been seeing a lot of this turquoise color used lately in revamping home furnishings. It really adds a quirky spark to a room. Might have to try it for myself!

I LOVE it!

especially against the brickwork! great color choice, and keeping the hardware was crucial!

this looks awesome! you didn't happen to find it at fantastic thrift in richmond, va did you? because i saw a desk i think EXACTLY like this with the nasty yellow paint and everything few weeks ago there. i saw it and totally went "if only i had an expendable income!" if so, that's crazy and it's a small world! if not, nevermind, lollerskates. 8D
