Drafting Table Restoration

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.

    The guitar! Looks like you have a lovely workspace – with the table next to the window, it almost looks like where you used to carve in the study room. Except a lot brighter. And the new print looks great on the wall^_^! Have fun working on the new piece – I can’t wait to see how it goes!

    Thanks! I think it will end up working out really well. LOL as for the print on my wall it’s a proof on newsprint so I can just pin it up without fear. :D
