Vintage Shabby Chic School Desk Makeover
Vintage School Desk Commission for a Shabby Chic Makeover
We, as parents, are all relieved with a new school year beginning. Children, on the other hand, are not happy at all. Perhaps it is a good idea to sparkle their life with a Shabby Chic bits of their own history? Such an idea got to us a customer with old, rusty, old-fashioned school table – with a request for makeover for 11-year old daughter.

This Shabby Chic Coffee Table made of vintage chest box is on Sale now
This Shabby Chic Coffee Table is made of vintage Trunk / Chest Box.
We removed front lid and made a shelf of it. Now it perfectly fit either in front of your sofa as a coffee table, or in your hallway as a fancy shoe shelf.
We transferred a print on the back of the piece, this time it is a American vintage advert of bicycles, way from 19th century (approx 1890). Original of this image you can find at Grahics Fairy website, this one with a small tweak to meet our needs.
If you like design of the print you have opportunity to buy it in a form of water decal, check on our Water Decal of Vintage American Columbias Bicycle Advert.
