This desk stayed in a basement for many years. It was in bad shape and split down the center. It is made of wood and cast iron parts. To refurbish this desk, I took everything apart and individually sanded all the surfaces. I used wood glue to repair any split wood. After I sanded every piece, I used two types of varnish to get a two-toned effect. In the end, it turned out so well that I don’t even want to use it for art but rather a piece of furniture to display art.
