Entryway - School Desk

Project Life is coming tomorrow – it was too dark today to take good photos.

I love school stuff. Jake likes to describe my decorating style as “8th grade classroom”. Which is probably spot on. We’ve got a school chair or a microscope in pretty much every room in the house (that’s not even counting the school chairs in the shop). So it’s no surprise that I beelined straight for the vintage school desk and chair set at my Great-Grandpa Ray’s Estate Sale last week.

Poppy (my grandpa) brought the set over on Sunday and I’ve just found the perfect spot for it – situated in our entryway between the lockers we use as a coat closet and the built in bench adjacent to the front staircase. As luck would have it, the desk is a perfect fit.

The kids are already in love with it. Jonas is a fan of anything new to climb and Eliza loves that it looks like our studio drafting table. It’s her mini work desk. She now goes straight for it after school and starts drawing and coloring away. I like that the desk feels like it’s in the same room as the office (we have an open floor plan, so there isn’t a wall in between the “office” and the entryway) and that it’s not in sight of the the TV.

Jonas was very helpful as I took photos of typewriters on the desk for our next update (hah!).

And, of course, it will never look this clean again. Here’s to adding more awesome school stuff to our collection!
