Now that we’re knee-deep in September, I think we can officially say that summer is ending, Fall is nearly here, and school has most definitely started! I don’t know about you, but I am definitely a fan of vintage/classic classroom staples- rulers, globes, pencil sharpeners, lockers, desks, and everything in between. Who would have ever guessed how hot a trend this would be? Go ahead, Google “Schoolhouse Décor”…it’s totally a thing.
And while trendy home décor stores and catalogues will try and tempt you with new-to-look-old cubby hooks and pretty colored inkwell bottles, I prefer the real deal. And my guess is that you do, too! Plus, there are some amazing repurposing ideas out there…which means that the thrill of the hunt for vintage “academia” is officially ON!
So, if you’re looking for some inspiration, you’ve come to the right place…ready for an education in repurposing? Let’s put our thinking caps on with this fun round-up of project ideas from the classroom…
What a fun trip down memory lane, right? So which one is your favorite?? I’m pretty sure I need at least one slide carousel…and that typewriter as a docking station is out of this world! Cheers to all the teachers out there for doing a job I could never do- both of my parents are retired teachers! And cheers to my fellow junkers and pickers who are forever on the hunt for the perfect treasure… everyone gets an A+ and a gold star today.
