School Desk Makeover

I scored this desk at a local flea market (which I'm kind of obsessed with)...

I went there on a shopping trip with Sarah from Love, Love, Love... she's sorta my partner in crime (willing or not!). I saw it... sat down in it... and watched people walk by until Sarah came up and I told her I wanted it. I wanted it and it was only....

$3.00!!!! Marked down from $20 when I had spotted it two weeks prior!!!
Now this was followed with me backing up and staring at it, then carrying it through the aisles. I said, "Only a teacher would be this excited about a school desk." Sarah laughed and said, "I was going to say that I like it and then I realized I'm a teacher too!" (I love her, she is my bestie and she makes me a better person just by knowing her.)

Anyway, the seat was cracked, but I decided I would mod podge that away! Here's what I got:

I just went to Hob Lob and picked out two sheets of coordinating paper, cut them into squares and mod podged those babies on!

It makes me happy! I sit in it in the middle of my living room with the laptop or a craft whenever the furry pompom brat won't stop torturing me (note his puffball tail in the above picture). My furry children are EVERYWHERE!

  1. Eeek! I love the way your desk turned out!!! Super cute makeover. :)

    You have some lovely items in your shop! My only suggestion would be to add more stock (maybe some pins or hair clips?). The more you have to look at, the longer people will stay on your page. :)

    Thank you so much for joining my Weekend Bloggy Reading party. :) Have fun finding a new blog friend or two, and I hope you'll visit me at Serenity Now again soon! :)

  2. What a fun desk! We had one of these as kids and I wish my parents had kept it. I'll have to check out my local thrift stores.

    You have very pretty items in your shop! The prices seem to be about the same as similar items. I agree with Amanda about having more stock so people are looking longer.


Thanks for sharing the love! :)
