New Poppy - Desk With Striped Top
This desk seemed like a too good to be true find and it really was. Once I brought it home and started working on it, I noticed that the top veneer was detaching itself from the surface. Rather than trying to glue it down, I decided to take it off completely and reveal the wooden base. I called my trusted iron and scraper to the rescue and little by little the beautiful wood was revealed.
I used natural wood grain as a base for the stripes and left the last one unpainted.
It is a fun little piece that can now be found in my Etsy store.
Have a great day friends.
