Before and After

I've always wanted an antique student desk. I'm sure it's the teacher in me! A few months ago, we spent the morning going to garage sales. As we approached this front yard, my heart skipped a beat. There was this little desk. I was especially excited because it was so small. It stands a mere 23 inches tall. How cool! I asked the owner how much she wanted for it and she replied, "$15". I couldn't believe my luck! Just what I wanted and cheap, too!

A few months later, some research, and some elbow grease, you can see the result. We think it's a Shaker desk made for a kindergartener. It may be missing a few original parts, but I don't care. It's in my living room and it's MINE!
