school chairs

last week's auction was full of industrial school supplies.

these chairs had little side mount desks that i cut off with my angle grinder (nothing in my shop is quite as thrilling as all those sparks!) i love the molded plywood- but i couldn't get the wood to look as fresh as i wanted.



so i added a bit of green paint and voila. i love that they have the racks underneath. all those magazines that fill the table- whoosh, out of sight, or maybe a tin full of craft supplies could live under there. as someone who's always looking for ways to balance life's piles with clean surfaces these chairs really sing to me!
