vintage school desk

This is a really cute little vintage school desk that we picked up at our local thrift store. I thought that it would be the perfect size for my niece.

I gave it a bit of a sand and a careful re-spray and think that it looks pretty good. I sanded down the wood, which had suffered a bit over the years and even painted her name on the seat (although my hand is far from steady!) before giving it a few coats with a wipe-on poly.
