Here's the French desk I purchased a few weeks ago in Delaware.
Its currently residing in my parents garage with a bunch of junk, but if you look beyond that, isn't it pretty??
It seems like there was something in this inset area on the top.
I'm going to see if I can find a wood veneer that I can attach and stain to match the darker wood on the front. I'm going to move the console in my dining room and put it behind my couch along with my thrift store chair. I didn't need this desk, but just couldn't pass it up. I loved the elegant look and the colors of the wood are perfect for my living room. If you look at the picture on the left on my blog, you can see I have a big pine armoir. All the other furniture is dark wood. This desk ties it all together perfectly!
We had a great weekend in Delaware. Home tomorrow!
