I found this pretty desk at a second hand store and knew all it needed to restore it to it's beauty was some TLC.
When I started sanding it I couldn't help but wonder, "who, and why, do people carve their names into furniture, really are they that bored"? A cat had also done a real number on the base of the desk with it's claws.
Because of the deep engravings I had to sand really deep to smooth it out.
Once I did the wood on the top looked beautiful. I stained it in ebony, my favorite stain color lately.
I then painted the rest in ASCP Paris Gray. I love this color, and then I glazed it with Val spar glaze and finished off with spray on poly.
I love how it turned out, a face lift for a beautiful desk, and the fresh lilac's were the finishing touch.
