The rest of my furniture is dark wood (mostly Asian antiques) and I have a lot of reds and gold and the walls are about to be painted jade. Basically this desk doesn't go with anything. I was thinking of painting it, but I really don't know how to go about that. Any tips on how to do that and also...what color? Or should I just wave my white flag, give up and just buy a new desk?
