I found this lonely old desk in a thrift shop. It had damage to finish with some type of chemical, probably nail polish or remover,the rest had layers of polish and it was so grubby you could scrape wirh your finger nails. I sanded the top, the fold out desk writing surface and all drawer fronts.

i painted the rest with gf coastal blue and the rest is history after. few coats of gf top coat.

 truley a thing of beauty!
