If you follow Nokoikonomia on Facebook (find us here), you’d know about the awesome toddler sized vintage school desk that I missed out on. I was bummed. But figured maybe it was okay because that vintage school desk isn’t really my style. Too old fashioned and charming for my cozy modern vibe.
But then one weekend after my last in class final exam for law school (!) I stopped at a rummage sale at a church across the street from school. And found another pretty cool vintage school desk. And even though it’s a little old-fashioned for me, I bought it. And I’m going to update it at some point and try to make it work in our new cozy modern living room.
Any ideas of what I should do with it? Just clean it up a bit and leave it rustic? Paint the metal? I like the warm wood in the chair seat and back, but I’m not so sure about the more plastic-y looking wood (?) desk top.
