Sometimes I know that I probably shouldn’t buy something because of the what it will cost me to restore, but I love seeing things returned to their former glory, so it can be worth it just for the experience! I was attracted to this lovely little child’s desk set because of the bold primary colours and simple design, but it was in a rather sorry state when we bought it and took quite a bit of work to get it to look the way it does now. We haven’t touched the painted panels though, and they’re still a bit worn looking, particularly where the two halves (which make up the removable/reversible ‘lids’ to the desk) meet. Other than that, I think it turned out pretty well. It’s made from a simple pine, but I love the contemporary design, particularly the skinny back supports, which elevate it above your average kiddies table and chairs.
