Old School Desk Ravamp

When a friend first asked me to redo her old school desk, I was somewhat concerned about how it would look as a finished product. The etched names were not my concern, it was the large, green ink spot at the top!

Thankfully after an hour of sanding, the top actually turned out just beautiful.

I am a sucker for before and after photos, so this is a great before shot: is the after. Painted in a mix of blues and the top was stained in Jacobean beeswax from England. I had it finished in just under 4 hrs and my friend was thrilled!

4hrs? That's impressive! (and pretty)
