Vintage School Desk

Love Bunny was kind enough to go look at this vintage desk today I spotted on craigslist. He brought it home!!! Squeeeeeealllll!!! Okay, now I have to prime and paint it and add some roses. I'll probably do decals. I don't have the courage to paint it yet! Hah.........


  1. That looks like a useful piece of furniture that you will no doubt make beautiful.

  2. NO WAY!!! I've been scouting Craig, looking for a desk I can use since the armoire thing isn't working out so well. I like the mission style one, but it's too big for where I need it! lol

    I'm sure it will look beautiful when you're through. Hand painted roses or not!


  3. Boy have you been a busy girl! Must be the season but all I want to do lately is move furniture! Maybe your finished desk will inspire me to get some painting done, cause I am soooo behind! Have a nice Autumn weekend coming up! Lori

  4. What a great desk..I love desks and hutchs for some will it be pink or white?

  5. Hi Connie!

    What a great desk and how nice of hubs to go and get it for you! I can't wait to see it all finished!

    Have a great day,

  6. Hi Connie, it's beautiful the way it is now but, I'd love to see what you do with it. To remove my wallpaper I peel the top layer and just sprayed the paper underneath with plain water and it peeled right off. Deb

  7. Hi Connie,
    Love the lamp shade and the vintage desk is sweet and I know it will look lovely after you do your magic touch on it:) My craft room is still a Do Not Enter room. I keep thinking it will get done soon...and it's been 4 years...

  8. Hi Connie ~ what a great desk! I think you paint wonderful roses!

    What a swell hubby!


  9. Connie,

    What a great find. I have purchased so much of the furniture in my home on Craig's List. It's the best place for great deals. I bought my beautiful white mantel for $50 (of course it was black when I got it, but not anymore!) lol

  10. That is a great desk. Lovebunny did good !! :)

  11. OMG I love this desk!! it looks so much like the one I had as a kid. My grandparents had it in their living room for many years, then painted it blue and I got it as a wonderful surprise. Only wish I still had it today!!

  12. Lucky you Connie! What a sweetheart your hubby is. Can't wait to see it finished!!! Hugs, Maryjane

  13. Like the desk! I am sure you will have it looking totally wonderfully shabby chicky shortly!

    Just gotta tell you that I smile everytime I see your profile pic- love those glasses! (I was over at someone else's blog leaving a comment and your cute little pic was there which reminded I needed to come and say hi!

    blessings to you
