I bought this old school desk for $10. Someone had spray painted it pepto bismal pink, gross!!! They even sprayed over the gum stuck under the desk, more gross! I stripped and scraped and finally found the original color. I also found a math test rolled up and stuck in one of the metal pipes under the desk dated 1976. Here's some pics before and after. I painted the desk top with chalkboard paint and tried to restore the rest to its original colors.
