Waterfall what?

HI everyone.  It has been awhile since I posted.  I think I kept waiting for warmer days this winter, and you know what, we still haven't had them so I threw in the towel and started in on some projects that have been in storage for a few months.  My first one is this waterfall front desk.  It has some issues, as you can see..but I love the character of the desk.  It is almost done but I couldn't wait to share it with you.  The process of the transformation was to sand and then paint in an off white.  I left the top in natural wood, sanded it and then applied a dark wax Annie Sloan Dark Wax Stain (which I LOVE).  Then I stenciled this large stencil pattern on it, and put another layer of dark wax stain over the top of it.  And...I love it.  What do you think?  I have the handles yet to complete, but that requires a little shopping!
