School Master's Desk

I think I may have mentioned my addiction  fondness of the Facebook Marketplace in my previous post.  I like it better than Craigslist for the simple fact that you can actually see the person you are meeting.
I found this lovely schoolmasters desk that needed a little TLC.  It truly was a joy meeting the owners. I was told it was from the 1800s and owned by his great grandfather who was a school teacher.  Whether or not he used it for that purpose, I do not know. 

It had some staining all around and rough wood at places.
I sanded it down inside and out.
I wanted it to look natural, so I used Annie Sloans Dark wax on it hoping that it would darken the filler that was all over it.  It did!
The last thing to do was buff it.
So beautiful!!

  2. That is a wonderful desk. Looks great in your home and I like the fact that you can use it to store things in. I often use Coconut oil on old wood pieces that I do not want to paint, but will now try out my AS dark wax like you did. Great idea.
