Small secretary desk re-vamped

Hey everyone! I scored this little secretary desk for free the other day. It was UGLY but sturdy. I originally planned on just painting it I did. And I didn't like it. It wasn't fun enough. This thing is ALREADY pretty lame looking...and with it just painted plain white it didn't give it enough pizazz so I decided to dry-brush some watered down turquoise over the top of the white. (sorry...didn't take before or during pics). After it was all done I sprayed the  hinges with matte aluminum spray paint that matched the GORGEOUS Martha Stewart Living hardwear that I picked up at Home Depot. I LOVE how it turned out. Its super cute and functional now and is the perfect spot for my laptop. It also works great as a mail center!
