We rescued this old desk that we found in pieces at the curb. The base was painted with Sherwin Williams Emerald Urethane in Wall Street (dark grey) and the top was refinished using Minwax Jacobean stain and a satin poly finish. The old gold drawer pulls were freshened up with a coat of Rust-Oleum in oil rubbed bronze. Now Nigel has a much more comfortable spot to do his homework. Who am I kidding…he uses it for gaming, not homework.
This table had seen better days when I was tasked with restoring it. After much sanding and bleaching, the stain on the bottom shelf was lightened, but could not be permanently removed. As the client didn’t want to replace the veneer from the shelf, we masked it as best we could with a slightly darker stain and satin finish.
