« Part 5: Make Ready the Top! Part 6 of Refurb, Table for a Desk series no next part

3-2-1 mix on top (4 coats) and aprons / legs (3 coats). Here’s the refurb’d desk with the vintage topper; all I did to said topper was applied some finish to freshen it up.

My harlequin version of a Lincoln Desk, then:

That’s a wrap, thanks for looking!

Going ‘authentic,’ Shane. I don’t think it’s mine to substantially modify the piece, truthfully. There’s some provenance that says it needs to stay as is. Sounds funny, probably, but…

There is something about this piece that I am drawn to. Is it the simple beauty? Is it the apparent history? Do I just have remarkable taste? I dunno… But I do love this one.

I’m thinking it’s the fact that Smitty’s grass is so luscious.
