Refinished Antique School Desk and Chair
This antique school desk and chair combo has been sitting in my parents’ barn for almost 30 years now. We decided it would be the perfect little workspace for my daughter, but even she knew it needed some work.
I gave it a good cleaning and sanded away most of the rust to create a smooth surface. The next step was taking the desk apart so that it would be easier to spray paint the metal parts without having to tape up and cover the wood. (I did not disassemble the chair). I then painted the metal with spray paint and primer and used regular wood primer and paint on the wooden sections. I wont say it looks brand new, because it’s still got some small flaws here and there, but I think it came out adorable!
