Corner View: RepurposedWe have several repurposed things in our home...the most recent of which are these two antique type drawers which my husband's parents gave us when they moved. As we have both been in the journalism trade on and off throughout our careers, typeface drawers have a special place in our hearts. The vintage wooden letterpress print blocks, btw, were an earlier find, which spell out my name, my husband's, and our daughter's.
I got this vintage schoolroom desk at a yard sale for $10 when we first bought our house. We were out on a cruiser ride around the neighborhood at the time, and I was so excited at the find that we had to race home, get the car and some cash, and race back so as not to lose it. It has proved to be a perfect arts and crafts desk for the Q.
I was looking for wooden crates, to hold Q's toys and books, at the antique mart when I came across this Hong Kong-labeled shipping crate. Couldn't resist.
