I finally got around to building my wife her desk. It has four file cabinets since she runs two businesses for me. It is built out of maple and the top is walnut. We primed and then painted heirloom white on the base. After that my wife used a glaze to make all the detail stand out and give it that older look. We then used satin polyurethane to to finish it. The walnut top is stained with a walnut stain and finished with waterlox. It has the waterproof semi gloss base with a satin finish. The hardware on the desk is actual antique hardware from a salvage place in San Diego. I plan on building another one with a few changes but overall im pretty happy with it. My wife likes it alot and says its just what she had in mind so I guess a happy wife is a happy life. Haha.
