One of my fav things to to with wifey is strip back and revive old furniture. Here's the latest one we've done. In this case I actually did it all and she just decorated it and took the photo haha.
@ProjectPete well done mate, you & Leah have excelled again in resourcefulness & talent.
Looks great @ProjectPete, many thanks for sharing the project. What paint did you use?
Greetings @ProjectPete. What a fab result. Well done guys - easy to see you've done this sort of work before. It looks great ! Cheers
@ProjectPete, in another thread, Workshoppers are discussing trends that are tired. Your makeover is a perfect example of respecting the piece, avoiding in the face trendy glam, & resulting in a timeless treasure.
@Deanna, if you're not confident to jump into the deep end, then try doing the finish you'd like to use, either on a picture frame from an Op Shop, or a Craft Box from Bunnings:
They make nice presents too.
If you're worried about your painting skills, then aerosol spray paint will give you a beautiful, durable finish, & the colour/texture range is phenominal.
Maybe I should get it valued before I even consider restoring it. I have no idea where to get that done. I've looked it over and can't find a date or anything carved into it. I'll grab a pic and share it
Oooops, @Deanna, I just Googled Partner's desk, & they look pretty elaborate, with intricate carvings & exotic woods, so it'd be a tough restoration to take on, for sure.
