I bought this beautiful desk a while back. It's pretty old and it was quite beautiful already. I put it up for sale recently and someone bought it immediately. She wanted the top refinished and everything else painted white with dark wax over it.
I refinished the top with Kona stain and painted the whole desk in Old White. After I saw how beautiful it was in white paint, I just couldn't put dark wax on it. She agreed so I just put clear wax on and distressed it. I am blown away by its beauty now.
