I’ve just started remodeling my guest room. So many upcycling projects planned! This is the room where my daughter stays when she is in town. Because she visits Europe, France in particular, very often, she loves old Europe flavor in interior design. So I decided to add some French flavor to the room while reusing most of the furniture. One thing I had to replace, though, was a Shaker style, small desk. It absolutely did not fit in. Craig’s list, then! Sure enough, I found a very nicely shaped, French style desk with Ormolu (bronze ornaments on the legs) for $95. It was heavily nicked and scratched, especially the top and needed refinishing. A spray painting candidate? Will see, first I need to remove the old finish.
