An Old Desk gets New Clothing!

This old desk actually belonged to the Renewalist's Grandmother and who knows how much beyond that it has been in the family. It is going to one of the granddaughters who is going into her senior year of highschool this fall. But we couldn't allow ourselves to give it to her in the dilapidated state it was in. The old finish was badly damaged with scratches and gouges all over. One of the claw feet was broken right off! So we stripped that ugly finish off, sanded, glued, and repaired it's injuries, and then gave it a nice new finish. I am pretty sure that now in its beautiful brightened state it is ready for being used by a senior, who is looking at a even brighter future!
