Vintage School Desk Makeover

Some rescues have a really fun history, like this little school desk that got a makeover from Dee at Meatloaf and Melodrama.  Dee tells us, “This was originally my desk back when I was a lot smaller and younger–and no, I’m not that old! My aunt worked for one of the local school districts, and she saved this from being thrown when one of the older schools was being renovated.”


For this rescue of a rescue, Dee and her husband peeled away all of the stickers and spray painted the metal parts of the desk a creamy yellow.  She painted other wood parts of the desk white.  For a really fun touch, Dee used blue chalkboard paint to cover the desktop, making it a fun place to draw or work without paper!  I love the blue stripes she added to the seat, too.
