I think I may have mentioned my
addiction fondness of the Facebook Marketplace in my previous post. I like it better than Craigslist for the simple fact that you can actually see the person you are meeting.
I found this lovely schoolmasters desk that needed a little TLC. It truly was a joy meeting the owners. I was told it was from the 1800s and owned by his great grandfather who was a school teacher. Whether or not he used it for that purpose, I do not know.
It had some staining all around and rough wood at places.
I sanded it down inside and out.
I wanted it to look natural, so I used Annie Sloans Dark wax on it hoping that it would darken the filler that was all over it. It did!
The last thing to do was buff it.
