See ugly desk here:
I did some more sanding (that particular edge shown was pretty rough and I still never got it perfect) & primed it all.
(Btw, that's my $2 wine rack on top, I like it because it kind of reminds me of a birdcage. Now, it looks much letter in the kitchen with a coat of black.)
I debated on what color I was going to paint the desk and ultimately decided ona premixed Valspar glossy black. I figured it was either going A: in my office/craft/shamelessly cluttered office or B: Noah's man room and both have predominately black furniture. I I also ventured back to Target and grabbed some clearance pulls I saw the week before. Plus, two leftovers from my kitchen cabinet makeover.
It's temporarily housing Noah's TV but I'm pretty sure it's going to end up in my office. :D (Just don't tell him that.)
