Children's MCM School Desk + Chair Set - SOLD
Darling mid-century modern school desk + chair set. We freshened up the desk's writing surface by refinishing it, but preserved the beautiful natural patina in the desk's painted metal body. Our painting technique for the writing surface involved hand-painting two coats of Benjamin Moore Advance (a highly durable, washable, premium semi-gloss paint) over two coats of BIN primer. The chair is completely original. It has a nice blonde laminate over wood surface with gray painted metal legs, again with a beautiful natural patina. The desk can be purchased individually for $150, or paired with the vintage chair for $175. Both pieces were used by the students at the Francis T. Bresnahan School in Newburyport, and were rescued just prior to the building's demolition. These pieces are great for use in the home, or the classroom. They are strong, sturdy, and fairly heavy. We have various sizes + styles to suit children in grades 1-3. This desk measures: 24 1/2"W x 18 1/2"D x 23 1/2"H. This chair measures: 14"W x 16"D x 23"H.
