1950's SchooldeskOctober 12th, 2009 in member junk
This 1950's Heywood-Wakefield schooldesk was found stored above garage when we moved in over 27 years ago. Painted a tacky green, written on with black marker and stuck with stickers, it has been patiently waiting for a makeover. The paint was removed but the wood was not in the best shape so I opted again for a little black satin to spruce her up. A can of spraypaint for the metal legs and frame along with painting & distressing of the wood got the job done. I may go back over the desktop with chalkboard paint so it could be used for a message board in an entryway or for a child's use.
I thank each JMS member for their inspiring projects-they have motivated me into action!
