Revamp of my 1955 Desk/ Vanity



In March, I attended the Roundtop Antique weekend in Roundtop Texas. While on the quest for french furniture, one of the antique dealers I occasionally visit told me about the show. After that, I could have sworn a gazillion other people also told me Roundtop was the place to go to find all the goodies. One time, while I was making my saturday rounds to Antique stores, I even heard a group of people discussing their strategy on how to go shop at Roundtop.

Uncomfortable as the hour and a half trip was, I believe it was worth it. My main find was this 1955 writing desk/ Vanity. I knew I had to have it the moment I saw those legs. Seeing the beautiful but very dirty hardware the desk was sporting dint hurt either. Here is how the desk turned out after I gave it a paint job and cleaned the Hardware.


Did I also mention that I copped a dresser that matches this desk? I DID!!!! A Tutorial on the tools I used and the steps I took in revamping this desk will be coming up after this post.
