Vintage Desk Vignette

Last weekend I worked with my daughter on her new home office area, which motivated me to create a vintage desk vignette in my own home. Since school starts for a lot of kids this month, I decided to haul out my vintage penmanship poster to start things off!

I love my penmanship poster and it was such a steal!

The last time I featured it on my blog was at my Christmas home tour.

In fact, I recently placed a vintage butterfly poster on my summer mantel.


Vintage Books VignetteBack to school season means books to read so I tucked a few of my vintage books inside a mini suitcase I purchased a few months ago.

Vintage Brown Bottles VignetteI just started collecting little brown bottles. Aren’t they cute?

I painted it and decoupaged the desk using script style scrapbook paper.

But I’ve actually been thinking of taking a computer class at our local college this fall. Maybe a web design class or a Photoshop class.  A photography class might be fun too!

  1. I love your vintage desk vignette. Going back to school for fun classes is fun. I am currently taking a furniture painting class even though I paint furniture and sell it in my booth. It is so interesting to learn new ideas and techniques. Enjoy.
