What Color Should I Paint New Desk?

Good Questions

Q: Hey everyone! I just got this steal off Craigslist for $25. I'm going to use it for my sewing machine in a small nook we have off our kitchen. I do love painting furniture super vibrant colors (i.e. when I was single my nightstand was grass green), but my husband loves greys, blacks and neutrals. Through the rest of the house we've combined our styles together by using his favorite colors for shelving, or bed frames, or our couch, and I get to throw color in by way of decor items like a bright orange pillow on the gray couch, or vibrant art on the walls and throw blankets. Any color ideas for this lovely little desk?
