Computer Desk With Storage Made With Vintage Wooden School Desk
Restored wooden computer desk with storage made with vintage school desk.
Size: W56cm x D46cm x H77cm approx.
I found this school desk in a market in need of some tlc.
The desk needed some repair. The front 2 legs where loose and I fixed them using glue and crews, which I covered with wooden nails.Also unfortunately the bottom of the inside storage was broken and I replaced it with reclaimed ply wood wood, which I painted a vintage sage colour to give it a fresher and cleaner look.
The desk was covered in blue paint. I therefore sanded it down extensively to bring it back to its natural colour and then gave it several coats of bees wax. Some paint is still visible but doesn't affect the overall look.
The desk being so old obviously shows signs of wear but I think it is to be expected given its age. It also luckily still retains its original inkwell and ink pen groove and metal work.
I think that because of its size this desk would work perfectly as a computer desk, also providing nice useful storage under the lid.
