So.... the desk? the one I posted about? Is going to be painted white. It will match the molding and the trim of the interior of the house, and the hardware on the desk will be black (also matching the house).
Also good news: the desk will be finished sooner rather than later. Which is good, since as of this afternoon, we are getting VISITORS ON THURSDAY (family from Ohio)!!! :)
So. Photos to come.
