I very very very rarely paint with JUST white….but it really is perfect on this gold striped desk.

I purchased this piece fully painted in this neutral and antiqued white.

How could I not???

Just the shape of this piece alone called out to me!

I figured I would get it to the shop…..and repaint it if needed.  But after careful inspection…I was pleasantly surprised with the existing paint job…

…and chose to only freshen it up with a light coat of Buttercream by Dixie Belle Paint and some heavy-handed sanding. 

I then taped off the section above the top drawer…..as well as that amazing lower skirt…..in preparation for a playful stripe.

I chose Eternal Decor Wax by Redesign with Prima to stripe with…..as it’s a quick and easy method for stripes.  See my short Painting Stripes with Furniture Wax tutorial here.

I used the leftover gold wax on my brush to add some gold shimmer shading around the drawer edges and the drop leaf.  

I then used my finger to apply a bit more gold detail to feet, hardware and carved swags.

I sealed the entire piece in DB Clear Coat in Satin

I absolutely love this desk.

It is feminine…..but not dainty! 

It has a boldness and strength about it that I just love! 

And the addition of the stripes keeps it from appearing too serious! #neutralwhimsy

It would make a great entry/foyer piece….and even could be used for a vanity with the drop-down desk portion.  It is VERY heavy and VERY sturdy with a spacious inside!
