My taste has changed a little over the past few years, but one thing that has remained the same is my love for beautiful turned legs (by a lathe). You can usually find these legs on the older antique, real wood furniture pieces and I fall madly in love each time.
Just look at these legs:
So naturally I am drawn to those pieces to refurbish. And if I can, I always try to restore the piece. If the hardware is in good shape, I keep the original hardware whenever possible. I’m an antique lover (vintage lover, I prefer old pieces with history, whatever you want to call it) first and a furniture refinisher second, so if I can keep the piece in tact as much as possible, you can bet that I will.
This desk, with its gorgeous legs, had been hanging around for months and its time had come to be brought back to life:
Unfortunately, I didn’t grab a true “before” shot, but you can see from the collage in the very first photo how beat up and scratched it was:
A previous owner or user of the desk had taken a sharp object to open the second drawer on the right a few times so there were some serious gouges that needed to be doctored. I filled those areas with wood filler and let that dry while the top was sanded with an orbital sander. I then took a coarse grit sanding sponge and hand-sanded the edges. That took quite a bit of time as the edge is routed in a very detailed pattern.
I then stained the top of the desk with one coat of Java Gel by General Finishes to restore it and give it the richness that the shape of the desk so greatly deserved. Then I sealed it with two coats of General Finishes High Performance Water Based Top Coat in Satin finish.
The desk has been restored and given a beautiful makeover. So much so that it didn’t even make it to the floor. It was sold while I was still working on it. I love happy endings!
