I've been wanting to do something like this for myself for years. I had this old desk from when I was teenager and it has been really loved and used over the years. I've been brain storming for years on what I was going to do with it and knew that I needed to think about the other furnishings that would be going with it in order to pick the right color combinations.
Here is a before picture of my desk...
I am just loving the new colors, they are so happy and remind me of happy spring/summer days at the beach.

And remember to not be afraid to go bold!
