Q: I just scored this $20 desk from Goodwill for my nine year son's bedroom. I am painting it with Benjamin Moore's Aura paint in Van Deusen Blue. I want to make sure the desk would carry to his teen and adult years. The hardware I am planning to use are the Spinneybeck butterfly leather pulls. I only need three so it really isn't cost prohibitive, the quart of paint cost as much as the desk!

Anyway, I am torn on what color to use for the pulls. Brown, Black, White?

Here is a link to the available colors of the Spinneybeck pulls.

I'm sure the AT community will help out as always!

Editor: Such a great project - we'd go for the red pulls for a fun contrast/pop to the blue desk, although it sounds like Jen is looking for something a bit more subdued. Please share your color vote with Jen in the comments below - thanks!
