Thinking about what I could write about the topic “Back to school” it occurred to me to write this post about decorating with vintage desks and blackboards (for me THE symbol of school – unfortunately blackboards are used less and less).
I love the idea and am seriously thinking of buying a vintage desk though I do not really know where to put it – love it so much. They incorporate a piece of history: imagine all the children seated at it in the past.
To mix furniture and decorative items with different styles and from different eras is something that I have always liked – have a look at my vintage rocking horse here. Awesome to put a vintage school desk in a modern kid´s room … It looks so chic!
Furthermore you recycle old objects and give them a new use.
I simply love blackboards and walls or furniture painted with chalkboard paint, as you can see in my post on decorating with blackboards and our blackboard door.
Hang a vintage chalkboard in your home – a beautiful and stylish idea.
Talking about “Back to school” and blackboards: I found this tutorial to make t-shirts with chalkboard paint for your kids. Great idea!
