Upcycle: Mod School Charm!


I'm really fond of old school desks ... maybe it's all those stories I was told by my mom/aunts etc about "naughty" boys dipping girl's braids into ink wells and things. And my high school still used old wooden flip-top desks (with aforementioned inkwells still in place and long-ago student names carved into the wood).

Apparently Ashley over at A to Being Creations feels the same way about these desks and thrifted this one (antique chair included) for $15!  But when, after spending hours stripping the desk itself, she found lead in the top panel, she did this. A plexiglass top and eye-popping green paint. I LOVE IT. I want one now. Go get the details...
