Salsa desk!

I guess it's about time I share a finished piece with you.  I know...it's been a looong time.  The other good news is that it's available in the shop. :)

Jilly from the blog Girls with Good Taste was looking to sell this beautiful, antique desk.  She sent me a picture and it took me all of five seconds to respond with an enthusiastic YES!  She even dropped it off at my house.  How's that for first-rate service?



The color is BM Salsa (from this post).  The white balance on my camera was having serious issues capturing this intense color correctly and it reads differently depending on the angle of my computer screen.  I'm hoping it's reading right on yours.


Of course I opted for a high gloss finish. :)


Don't you love the antique hardware?  I think this style is referred as batwing.

This last photo seems to be most indicative of the true color.  A deep, pinky, orangey, coral color.  How's that for technical.


Pricing and dimensions available in the shop.  Shipping is available within the US.

  11. In love with this color! What did you use for the finish on this one? I haven't been brave enough to do a high gloss finish yet...very intimidating to me-but I'm itching to try it.

  13. Good morning. Stumbled across this desk and love the color. I do interior design through my company, Innovasion and I have created a FemShui Design brand for creating inspiring workspaces for women at home and at the office. I posted your desk - perfect for FemShui Design.
