As per buddysgal, one of my most favourite coIours, but I feel there's just too much blue in the dining room. Great job though.

mbartley56 You're right, it is a secretary. My mother-in-law has that exact one.

I have a similar desk to the secretary. It's called an escritoire. It's an 1895 reproduction of a 1795 French writing desk. It was made to mark the 100th anniversary of the desk. Now it is also an antique in the truest sense of the word. (over 100 years old, etc.) I've been tempted to sell it several times since I bought it 44 years ago, but have always changed my mind and I'm glad I did. It has the original glass and finish.
