Sweet Little Desk

I am a kijiji fiend! I love hunting for treasures and have found a great many of them. Mostly I hunt for good deals on baby things- There is seriously SOOO much like-new stuff that people are just desperate to get rid of. Today, however was not about baby stuff... we finally found a new desk! We have wanted a wood desk with drawers to replace a glass one we have had for several years, but we were quite particular in our search as it had to be small enough to fit a predetermined space, and I didn't want to spend a lot of money. We found this one- a beautiful antique, solid and with more drawers than we know what to do with for a bargain! I have been daydreaming about giving it a fresh new paint job- its a bit banged up and scuffed around the edges, but i love the character it has, and I am excited for the paint to highlight the years of love (and abuse) this little desk has endured. Now the question is- what colour should we paint it?
