This desk was actually made about 50 yrs ago and had been passed down 2 generations already. My friend wanted to pass it to the next generation in the family, but over the years it had been well used and painted way too many times. So, last summer I offered to see what I could do to make is nice again.
After a couple months of patience and determination, I managed to get all the horrible paint off of it. Then I replaced the lid that had become warped, coated it a couple times with a child safe finish, and lined the inside with felt. TADA!!!!
Now it is pretty again and is very appreciated by the 3rd generation.
This project was one that came with great satisfaction in the end for me.
