An Antique Desk and Bentwood Chair

Some recent acquisitions include this antique desk (this one is my dad's pick... he found it and brought it over for me) and a bentwood chair (my find).  The two are a match made in heaven. 






The desk features seven dovetail jointed drawers.  One of the drawers was in pieces, but with super human Gorilla Glue and some weights, the piece was appropriately fixed.  With only the cost of refurbishing, these two items were primed, painted with latex, distressed, and then waxed. 

Together in blissland!






I don't often care to store chairs, but the unique curved frame of this one caught my eye.  I knew she was a keeper.






The marriage of the two was so surreal it could have been prearranged.






A perfect fit!
