Can I just squeal a minute? New school desk!

Recommended Posts

Have to shout it somewhere - I'm so excited! We found a new school table on craigslist to replace our 6' folding buffet table. This new table is the same length, a little wider and oh so much sturdier. It is a simply gorgeous 1940s library table with two deep drawers. The wood is so solid and the top is, I don't know how to describe it or what the technical term is, but the grain along the top is all matched together. It is stained a deep red with wood grain showing through right now and it's beautiful, but when I redo it when the weather is warmer I'm going with turquoise stain (still want the beautiful grain showing through)! It has square tapered legs with brass shoes. It's important to me to have a nice table because we school in our eat in kitchen and it is open to the rest of the house.

Thanks for listening, just had to squeal with glee!
