found this old child's desk abandoned at the auction house. It was falling apart and duct taped together- I think that's why no one wanted it. I figured "hey, it's free" so I took it home and decided to put it back together again. It's kind of rough looking, but I thought if I painted it it was lose it's look. Folded beneath it are afghans that were crocheted by my great-grandmother and top of it are some more antique and vintage books that I have found in my dumpster diving expeditions.

I love to see them in homes - makes them homey :) We have one from my hubby's grandmother, and feel very fortunate to have it. ~Mary~ Posted: 11:47 am on June 2nd

It's currently in it's "found" state however I'll be slapping on some paint in the near future (maybe).

Thanks for sharing your save!
