We had this desk with us at the flea market last month. However, it was still in its original state and I don't think anyone even gave it the slightest glance. We just didn't have time to give it a well deserved makeover until now. I personally chiseled off the petrified gum from underneath. What is it with gum and school desks? Now it has been painted a nice white with a very slight gray undertone. The paint is the Behr line from Home Depot and is the paint and primer in one. I actually found this on the oops table, so I can't give a specific color name. The writing area has been transformed into a little chalkboard.
I have just the perfect book for this spot. A vintage Tasha Tudor children's stories book.
I thought this music paper wreath tied with tulle ribbon added a charming and romantic touch. The seat of the desk has been distressed to reflect a time worn look.
I can see this desk being used in a variety of ways, both functional and decorational. And, being white, it is certainly versatile.
