I have to acknowledge my husband’s creative side.  All too often I use him to haul around my vintage finds, and I don’t tap into his creative visions.  So, this is an opportunity for me to applaud a project he recently undertook!

We’ve all seen desks like this.

A very cool vintage find, in and of itself.  My husband picked up a few of these desks a couple of years ago, and was holding onto them until the boys were older.  Well, Big Boy just turned four.  I’m not sure where the last four years have gone, but they did go, and quickly.  Big Boy is creative and thoughtful, and amazes me every day.  Every day, I see a bit more of myself in him (the good and the bad!), so I knew he’d love my husband’s idea to transform this desk and give it to him for his birthday.  When I was younger, I would spend hours at a similar vintage desk.  It was filled with sticker sheets, construction paper, glue and markers.  Oh, the masterpieces I created!  You haven’t seen anything until you’ve seen my stick figures!

My husband got to work, and I had nothing to do with it!  I was thrilled when he came home with this:

Vintage School Desk Red

He cleaned up the wood, and painted the metal a bright red and put a clear coat on the whole thing.  It is a red, shiny, happy desk!  And, best of all, Big Boy loves it!  Way to go hubby!

Now, what other projects can I put him to work on?
