Vintage Desk Redo

This small, vintage desk was found at a a yard sale and the only thing wrong with it was the padlock stuck on the bottom drawer pull.  Luckily, my landlord has a metal saw that he used to cut through the lock for me.

The desk is solidly built and has great detailing.

I used Country Gray Chalk Paint with Pure White trim on this desk, which was a simple fix.  

I have a degree in Biology and I love incorporating science into decorating.  I love the large, weathered science charts, test tubes, beakers, etc.  I have been wanting to create a science desk at Loot for a while and I am finally displaying some scientific paraphernalia on this little desk in a corner of the shop.

 I found this vintage, visible man at my auto mechanic's shop.  My mechanic is an avid yard saler too and I always look forward to seeing his new finds, when I take my car in for an oil change or tune up.

This is one of my favorite new items: a vintage light bulb bottle.  

This post is linked to the parties on my sidebar.

Hi Amanda! I hope you are doing well! :)

Your desk turned out gorgeous! The color of chalk paint you used for it is perfect. :) And that is such a great idea to create a place to show all your science collectables! That little light bulb bottle is so cute, I have never seen one of those before! And I love the botanical prints as well! :)

I hope you have a good night, and a great Wednesday!
