Buying Guide

There are different ways to refurbish a black roll top desk, so it really depends on your preferences and what kind of look you’d like to achieve. However, the basic steps involve:

  • Removing all the drawers
  • Applying stripper to all the wooden parts (a tip? Start with the smallest ones!)
  • Applying it to the actual roll top surface
  • After it’s stayed for the recommended length of time, scrap off your roll top desk’s old finish
  • Sand it
  • Stain it just like you want it
  • Let it dry for a whole day
  • Finish it off with a layer of lacquer

A black roll top desk has a classic and elegant feel that will match various types of interior style. However, as a piece of furniture that was a common fixture in offices before World War II when steel desks started to take over, they are more at home in rooms with a classic, vintage, industrial or rustic decor. Since the desk is black in color, it will fit in well with a wide range of fabric and furniture hues.
