An Antique Mahogany Desk

And another incredibly fun project- this serpentine front desk is such a looker. I love all the molded edges and the sophisticated spade feet. And solid mahogany, throughout. I refinished this piece for a client who has a great eye and is steadily building a phenomenal furniture collection. We went with a deep mint green paired with a pine top stained in English chestnut and sealed. The cove brass drawer pulls are playful with the top two ceramic knobs. Finally, the client hoped to save the decorative painting on the top center drawer. Since there was no way to paint  the desk and maintain the decorative bit, I repainted it from a photograph after the mint had been applied but before the distressing and wax.
