My Yard Sale Treasure

I seldom ever go to yard sales and when I do I even more seldom ever find a great deal. A few weeks ago was the exception. Check this out..for $25.00! I know its a old very prim desk.I have no idea how old but it sure shows lots of wear. Over the years the top has been replaced along with the hinges. Some extra cubby wholes were added inside. And it looks like it had been stored in a leaky old barn but all in all its in pretty good solid shape.

(Before)
(Before all yucky & nasty!)
(After)
So I cleaned and scrubbed on this baby for hours then gave it a good hand waxing. Im happy with the results and ready to hit more yard sales.
 I know have officially ran out of room in my house. Next thing that I bring in means something has to go out, sad times indeed. (hee hee ;)

You did a great job on it Pam. With all your hard work, it's a beauty. I've always wanted one of these desks. The last one I came across was over in NJ and it looked almost identical to yours. They wanted $600. My hubby said NO. You hit the jackpot on this find. Congrats on your beautiful antique.
