The granddaughter wanted a desk, so we scoured the antique shops and found this. Did some repairs inside, some patching on the outside. Then primed and sprayed 3 coats of white lacquer. The chair and mirror came from another antique shop.

Now working on a really old mahogany desk for the grandson.
