Q: I've had this desk for years and never really liked it, but I need somewhere to work and have decided that I might like it more if I paint it. Any suggestions on color? Is a dark or light color preferred when working? I would like to make it a dark smokey blue or a very deep red because it would be such a difference to the rest of the room, but not at the cost of getting a headache or something when working. What do you think? My room has very light colors, and there's a big window.
