Proving that ‘imperfect’ finds can still be upcycled into beautiful furniture, this French-style desk with missing drawers is given a makeover with a limed look using white wax. Denise Zdziennicki’s project is available inside issue 40 of Reloved magazine purchasable in paper and digital format.
‘When I salvaged this piece it had missing drawers and the top was covered in old contact paper.’ Denise says, ‘But despite this, I saw a solid wood desk that had beautiful bones and detail. It was a real diamond in the rough!’
