Old Home Made Desk Renewed

Here is  my pride and joy. I picked this desk up a few years ago at a 21st Century Antique Show. It is from back East and is made from Ash. I think it is a homemade piece. Have been wanting to freshen it up for some time. Using the same chalk paint I mixed up from my post on home made chalk paint here, I spent part of Thursday afternoon cleaning the desk, painting and when it was very dry, waxing and buffing.
 Before pictures, anything to freshen this desk would look good.
 I left the unpainted underside alone so the original wood could be seen.
 Nice contrast from truly vintage yellow to a calm shade of green.

A 'before' and 'after' comparison.

Thanks for visiting.
