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.”
