So the drafting table in the last post has now been completely and lovingly restored. All of it’s rusty metal has been polished. And the wood surface was entirely sanded down and re-varnished top and bottom. The wood surface ended up taking 1 coat of sanding sealer and 3 coats of varnish. Thing took forever to dry and now it is finally up in my room. I can’t put stuff on it yet until it’s had 24hrs for the final coat to set. Here is a picture!
Of course my life would be simpler if the table could actually fit where the other one was. But that is not to be… an entire bookshelf had to go. Which was a tremendous challenge for someone as attached to books as I am. Bit of chaos for right now but I think I’ll be able to pull it together.
