Ive got these two old school desks picked them up super super cheap at a yard sale. They are in perfect shape, the seats fold up nicely. Ive dated them to around 1890.I had them for sale on Craigslist, but the only hits I received were from a couple of "clowns" who wanted to send me a "cheque" and have cousin Vinny swing on by and pick them up. Anyway, Im not sure what to do with them. I do not want to paint them. Any ideas would be wonderful!

Those are precious! Could you remove the actual desk top & use the well as planters & use the
desk top tops as a garden sign or if indoors, add a piece of cork on one & chalkboard paint on the other. Would be cute in some type of covered garden area or porch!
Heading back from some work in Wyoming, my client wanted to take me out for a bite at a Restaurant in Fort Collins. They were going to continue on down to Denver for a night at the symphony. After we ate at this neat Brazilian Grill. I took the back roads home along the edge of foothills, rather than zipping down the less attractive stretch of I-25.
I happened along this place....I have to say it is probably the biggest home I have ever seen.
It looks kind of like a holly of some sort, but the leaves are more broad than any holly I've seen! Also, if you know what it is, just what are those berries going to do? Flower? Change color? Stain my clothes?
