Dear Style Lush readers, I am hoping that you can help me figure out what to do with two antique school desks that currently reside in my garage.
These are the type of old-fashioned desks that are meant to go in rows, so each student's desk is part of the chair in front of him. There's also a hinge that allows the seat to fold up. As you may be able to tell, the wood, especially the desk part, is pretty badly damaged. When I was offered these desks I accepted them because a) I thought they were interesting and b) they were free. And...they have been collecting dust in my garage ever since.
Does anyone have any suggestions for what to do with these things? Any ideas for how I could refinish or paint them? It seems like there could be a cool, creative or interesting way to use them, maybe in a kid's room, but I'm just not sure. Or maybe they're not even worth keeping and I should pass them along to someone else? I would love to hear your suggestions. Thank you!
