Executively Executed

 What do you think of when you hear the words "polished", "mahogany", and "brass"? You can almost smell the cigar smoke from here, right? It's such a manly, sight this desk:

It would be right at home in a high level executive's manly-man den, wouldn't it? I'm sure that man would have a better word for his private office, and there would be no need for a sign on the door that says "Men Only" because no woman in her romantic heart of hearts would want to enter! Unless, of course, there is some primping involved with some CeCe Caldwell's paint!  

Painted by the Über talented Pam Lawrence!

Now this is a desk I could fall in love with! All it took was some Seattle Mist paint on the drawers, top and sides, some (less than 1/4th of the can!) Vintage White on the trim and the brass drop pulls (that's riiiightt--just paint right over that glaring yellow metal!).  Cece's Satin Finish was used for a protective-sheeny finish.  To tell you the truth, it had me when I saw all those fabulous drawers!
