Sabi Saturday #14 – My Old Desk
To find out more details, and join in, just click the above link.
Sabi Saturday is open for a whole week where we share:
- the vintage/antique items handed down or we “rescue” from garage sales and thrift stores so they don’t end up in a trash bin
- items we’ve upcycled instead of throwing them away
- items we’ve repaired in a transformative way to make them more beautiful or cooler than before
- process or tutorials on how we upcycled or repaired something to make something new, more beautiful, or cooler
- the main idea is showing how we treasure or reuse or creatively transform things that have some history to them, may be a bit worn but nevertheless are still useful/beautiful and often have character.
Here’s a couple of photos of my old desk.
My parents bought me this desk when I was in elementary school. I used it for all kinds of projects, plus doing my homework on, all the way through high school
It’s brown wood, with a flat top. The front part is slanted and has a little knob. When you pull it down, it forms a flat desk space. Behind this are three middle shelves, and on either side of these are larger open spaces.
Then there is a fairly large open space to put things, and below that is another shelf, that has sliding doors in front.
After I married and moved away, my mom kept this desk and used it as a painting supplies cabinet/desk. She did lots of oil paintings, and this desk helped her organize things.
Many years later, I got the desk back, and it is now in our spare bedroom. I use it all the time, as a craft desk/table. I have all kinds of art supplies in the shelves. It’s kind of messy, but I can find what I need to work on. The flat top makes a good staging area for a lot of my photos now, too.
I’m so glad I still have my old desk. I’ve had it since the 1950s.
Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️
