Merry Christmas to me!

A couple of weeks ago I shared that Ben was working on a project for me (read it here).  Today, Ben brought home my desk!  He had taken it to the shop to refinish as my Christmas gift.  Let me tell you – it is beautiful!  It is now a dark walnut-ish color.  He fixed the nicks and scratches (while leaving a few for character), and stripped the roll-top. 

Here is the before picture:

isn’t it beautiful?

I have always had these old books and mason jars on the desk.  Now I think they look so much nicer.  I guess it’s because the desk is soooo much nicer!

I hope you all have a Happy New Year!
