Refinished Desk, Wednesday July 28th at the shop...

Another beautiful item, ready to leave our shop! This desk is from the 1930s or 40s. My Grandmother had one very much like it, I remember rooting through all the cubbies looking for little treasures. For this particular desk, we completely stripped off the old finish, replaced the veneer on the top drawer, re-built the cubby frame work, and sent out the hardware for re-plating. Of course, we also applied this beautiful new water-based finish which you see. I wonder what treasures will be stored inside this desk now?
