Retro Desk and Chair

I love to recycle old furniture that people just don't want anymore. Here is a desk I found. Yep, needed some TLC. This is a before picture.
So the first thing I did was scrubbed it down with hot water and TSP Solution
With a scrub brush and a clean rag started cleaning it inside and out.
Then I started sanding where I could with the electric sander the rest by hand.
Then I cleaned it again and now it is ready for a few coats of primer.
After I completed priming and sanding some more I then applied the paint I wanted to use. Let it dried and then gave it a good waxing to seal it in.
It turned out great. The chair I also reholposter to match the desk.
