Desk Refinishing Project


I bought this desk at an estate sale for 65.00. It had been painted a beige-yellow color. I started by stripping the paint, then sanding, conditioning, and staining the wood. It's still a work in progress.

    Thank you for not putting on globs of paint or chalkboard paint. I'm so sick of that fad already!! Looks great.
