Mahogany Desk

This is a very nice mahogany desk but with old dated and cracking varnish it needs a face lift.
So here we go!

Time to get out the stripper and revive these drawers

It is worth the extra work to get rid of the old shiny varnish and bring out the natural mahogany.

All day painting, but it is worth the end result. There was a lot of cutting in with the paint brush, so it is a good thing I am good at it.

The drawers still need to be waxed and they need new hardware, and the body of the desk needs light sanding and to be waxed.
