How to Find a Husband That Loves Vintage & Re-vamping as Much as You!

This is my husbands nifty, thrifty find! He spotted this sweetie on our neighborhood virtual yard sale post for $15.00 bucks! Whoop, whoop! This was totally his baby from start to finish! " So Proud"!!!
This is an old school desk, just like the ones we had in grade school, where I didn't study as much as I should have because I was making goo, goo eyes at him! We are now 57 years old & I'm still making goo, goo eyes! ;)
He took the whole desk apart & sanded most of the bad stuff off, probably where chewing gum had been stuck, I know, but you know we all done it back then!
After sanding he painted with white chalk paint, & distressed around the edges. Then he painted the iron legs a robins egg blue.
When all was dry, assembling was very easy, we were both amazed at the quality of craftsmanship back in the day!
So here is his baby, all put together & looking beautiful in the guest bedroom!
This is so cute & brings back so many memories! I love having things from days gone by & love that we can get them out of dusty attics & barns & enjoy them again!
LOVE! ~~~"Perfect "
