VIDEO – Episode Seven Roadside Desk Restoration with my Wife

Join my wife Kristy and myself in the shop as we restore a desk for her that we found alongside the road a few weeks back. This was a great project for us as we both got to get involved on something and we took a desk destined for the dump and put it back into use.

She wanted to keep it simple and look used so we opted for a “ratrod” type of restoration. Basically we just gave everything a sanding and put it all back together before hitting it with a mixture of Dark Walnut Danish Oil and Minwax Dark Walnut Stain. This gave it the look she wanted and in the end she was extremely thrilled with it.

Here’s a couple of pics of the desk as well.
