What are you most proud of? I actually have the book that is illustrated on the desk top & I copied some of the illustrations in it for the desk top decoration. The red, white & blue cup is the bottom of a shampoo bottle fashioned into a pencil holder. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I have learned not to use fill in all the cracks of older furniture as it always seems to let go after some time. I find it better to just sand the area smooth and accept the crack as a characteristic of the item.
