Beautiful! I love the contrast between the turquoise and the hardware. Beautiful job!

That looks great!  Refinishing furniture is so addicting and makes such a big difference.  I have an old sewing machine console that I want to repaint that color.

It looks amazing...

How long did it take to finish? Looks like you did a perfect job...

Thanks. It took me a lot longer than it should have seeing as it was my first piece to do so I had to learn everything and figure out things the hard way. The sanding was the worst part b/c of all the curves and details (there are definitely a few places that I somewhat squared off where it's supposed to be round, ha) plus I have a black and decker mouse that's really small...

Sanding probably took a good .. 4 or 5 hours ? If not a little longer, idk. Painting a few coats took a total of maybe 2 hrs.. Gloss took a total of maybe 30 minutes...

I love it! You did an awesome job! It looks like new. I would love to have that in my room. I should redo my old desk like that and would love to have that same color. What is the name of the color you used?

The detailing on the drawers is great and how wonderful that you didn't have to do it. I wonder if the  handles were sprayed painted black or a very dark complementary blue if it would have a more dramatic effect.

I just painted my first piece of furniture too and I'm beginning to think that it's going to be addictive.

The color is gorgeous! Fantastic choice. I'm about to start working on a side table and I think I might be going for a color very similar to that one now.

I think the handles are very nice the way they are. I like the cream/blue combo.
