Anyone who has school-aged kids knows how haphazard homework time can be. Kids trying to study (or attempting to look like they are studying while they are actually texting) on the sofa, in the kitchen, or on their beds. Experts say it's a great idea to have a designated study area for each kid, but really, who has room for that? Well, just about any space can fit these little vintage school desks. Anyone over the age of 25 probably remembers learning their times tables and conjugating French verbs while sitting in one of these, and they can easily fit in your child's bedroom.
They are not comfy enough to fall asleep in, they have built in storage, they are retro-charming – what's not to love? Those who appreciate a patina can pick these up straight off of Ebay or Craigslist and leave them as is, but the internet abounds with quick and easy solutions to update these classic pieces of classroom furniture to match your decor.
Let your (or your children's) imagination go, all while giving them a personal space to get down to learning. For some cool school desk update ideas visit Pinterest or doityourself.com.
