White and gold Vika trestle desk

Materials: Vika Byske tabletop and Vika Lerberg trestle legs

Description: I wanted a trestle desk with a little touch of glam. I bought a Vika Byske tabletop and Vika Lerberg trestle legs. I added one coat of primer, three coats of paint, and two coats of polycrylic on the tabletop. I spray-painted the legs with two coats of metallic gold spray paint. I love how it turned out!
