Picture Entertainment Center
My wife wanted me to build a set of built-in shelves, or at least an entertainment center. Never having done anything like that from scratch before, I hemmed and hawed a bit, until she found an old one at a yard sale for $200. Good price, but it was straight out of the '70s, with rounded wood grain trim and the obligatory gray smoked glass stereo component doors and we're more the pottery barn type. So off the trim goes and on goes new poplar trim... oh but wait, that's not all! She also wants the center section dropped, new shelves added, and a whole new section added to the top! Anyway, here's how it went:

Picture Old flip-top school desk
This old desk was painted a terrible green color. The green was applied over a red paint which; in turn, was applied over what appeared to be a shellac or varnish finish. The original finish (pickled oak?) was the type normally seen on old school desks.

I'm not sure how to re-finish the desk. I'd like to retain the basic wood look rather than paint again. I'd want the desk to have a highly polished look after completing the finish.

Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.
