Week 31 - revamping old furniture

During week 31 I finished off a desk I started cleaning up in May (then put in the shed and forgot about).

I'm not sure where this came from originally, but it's been in our family for a long time. I remember playing 'school' with my sister, one of us as the teacher, and the other as a student sitting at this desk. After we grew up it moved to an old shed, I think it was used for a bench for potting plants actually.
And then I remembered about it.

This is what I looked like before I started:

During sanding:

All sanded and ready to go:

During waxing:

All sanded, waxed and polished - finished!

From this:

To this:

And while I was doing that, I also did two drawers that were used as storage in the 'man cave'. They were filthy. I didn't take a before photo though. This is how they look finished:

The bottoms were very dirty - and really oily. So instead of sanding them and doing them all natural, I just covered them with an old map. And I think they look great!

Thanks for stopping by,
