My Roadkill Rescue

This is my Grandfather's old desk that was given to me on my 10th birthday. When I went off to college and got married, this desk stayed with my parents. When my husband and I purchased our first home, my parents were glad to give me the desk back. They even said, "You really want that old thing back?" But I saw the potential! Hidden under all of the scratches and wear was this beauty:


Can't wait to see the other rescues!

  2. Wow you refinished it didn't you? I love when you get hand me downs from family. It makes it that much sweeter when you refab something that you know another family member used.

  3. Great job. I love the color you chose. And now it can stay in the family and you'll always have a little something of your Grandfather!
