paint this antique looking desk or sell it

carlakitchenDecember 28, 2012
I have a desk just like this (took pic from web because my desk is in storage) should i paint it? If so, colour? Or just sell it. I have a formal living room with dark green and maroon furniture that it could suit although I really dislike its current stain colour. I have a bench seat not the chair as shown.

Do you need a desk in your living room? If not, and it doesn't seem like you like it very much, I recommend selling it.

No, don't paint it. Sell it and use the money for something else.

I wouldn't paint it, I would sell it and work to find something that you like.
