From Ugly Duckling to Peacock

    I bought this desk a few years ago off of one of the local sales groups.  It is the kind of piece that
I bought in the early days of my business.  Unknown maker....iffy condition, the kind of piece that could be "Rescued and Rehabed," because these often end up in the landfill even though it could still be useful.  While it has many blemishes, I have tried to turn it into a fun piece that could still be loved.   It feels  a little boho, with its blended blues and greens, gold gilding wax accents and knobs and beautiful Prima peacock transfers.  It is topcoated with Minwax Poly.  I am hoping this desk can find a home that will see past the bumps and bruises.  Paired with a mirror, it could also become a vanity.
