Antique Vintage Desks * Work for Hills Chapel Antiques

Taking a break from working on my antique chandeliers and switching to work on vintage antique desks. 
This old pine roll up one I cannot decide if I want to paint or just add a wax finish to it.  I am thinking of just waxing to bring out the old pine that is so popular in the West Coast.  What do you think?  Any suggestions?

Here is it with the roll up open with all the wonderful chubby holes.
Granted the pictures are terrible as I took on a very dim snowy grey day
in my back work room.

Here is an old Victorian one that I took apart to re-glue the legs.  The
old paint is so wonderful!

  1. I **LOVE** the victorian table! That is absolutely gorgeous! LOVE it!

  2. Fabulous roll top desk, if I lived nearby I'd be a regular customer. As to whether to paint or to wax, that's a tricky one. I think it will look wonderful either way, you can't go wrong :)

  3. OMG..I'm lovin' this table! Girlfriend, I need to plan a journey to TN. Yeah, that'll be ME pulling up in my new (but refurbished) AirStream. Hey girl!

    Maybe I need to sneek into town so you wouldn't know who it actually was that kidnapped Shiloh. I cracked up (and so did my husband) at her latest photo debut. Love that dog!

    Just wanted to pop in and see what's shakin' in your neck of the woods. While I'm sitting here writing this, I'm missing all the lovely things on your site. Catch up with you later! Blessings, joy and friendship, Terri


I LOVE feedback/comments!
