Lace Roll Top Desk

Finally I finished one of my longest projects - restoring roll top desk. We bought it last summer, then went vacation, then was new job, than hurricane Sandy, then moving, then...

It looked not bad from beginning but had some scratches, faded painting and other small defects. I started from sanding, then I painted with wood finish and started to draw lace. It takes tons of time to paint all these thin lines and small flowers :)

Last step - covering with water based finish. I plan to use it for all my stuff I use for handmade and painting that now stored in different places without any order. I am happy at last to have designated space for all my craft supplies.
