Revival Files

 Look at this sad little desk all beat up from some snot nosed kids. Scratches, nail polish, a mysterious lollipop welded to the drawer, it had all the signs of some serious abuse. I found this lil' guy at the thrift store for thirty bucks. Thousands of sandpaper sheets later and some stain and I brought my lil' man back to the glory days. Don't thank me yet desk, you have some serious sewing years ahead of you.

  2. This is an awesome redo! I have zero patience for sandpaper. Thank goodness the boy is rather handy and good at obeying instructions. He'll have to walk that road by himself. I'll supervise.

  5. What a great sewing table! I can't wait until I'm in an apartment big enough to have mine out!

    I love refinishing furniture, and there is nothing like the feeling of looking at the refinished piece all done and put in place!
