Several months ago, I purchased two vintage school desks at an auction. I think I paid $5.00 a piece for them.
My niece wanted them for her children’s playroom.
I sanded each one and used a gray primer. I started painting them red as you can tell in the picture below. I painted the top of the desk with a magnetic paint and then painted over top of that with a chalkboard paint as you can see in the picture.
I left the seats and the back of the desk as they were. I still wanted to keep some of the vintage charm.
My niece told me that BrayLee who is four years old loves her desk. She said that Trey who is one tries to climb up in the seat. I’m glad they’re enjoying them because I enjoyed working on them. And to think that these vintage desks are now being used by a new and precious generation.
P.S. I’m linking this post to Funky Junk Interiors for Sat Nite Special. Thanks Donna for hosting such a fun linky party.
