I always thought roll-top desks were cool, but that’s because as a child, I often pretended I was an old-timey banker who wore those arm band things and wire-rimmed glasses and a visor. Like this guy:
 I was kind of a weird child.
Anyway, guess what?  Turns out, the roll-top desk IS cool! Mandy at A Whimsical Flea Market proves it with this slightly distressed two-tone redo that has me drooling.  Looks like I was right all along.
Head on over to her blog and check out the neat stencil she used on the side too!

And here’s another amazing desk makeover from Sarah at Funcycled.  She did more than ‘funcycle’ it, because this thing was basically fire wood.  Yes, Sarah completely salvaged and restored it, and I think she deserves some applause for her  efforts in making this old desk shine again.  Join me, won’t you?  (clap! clap! clap clap clap!)

    Love these! We had a rolltop desk (still do) at my parents, but the smaller ones are even better, more vintage looking.

    Thank you so much for featuring my French Queen Bee Desk! It was a lot of fun to do and hopefully I will have a tutorial soon on how to do the image transfer technique I came up with for the Queen Bee image!

    Okay maybe I will drag that old rolltop out of the garage, paint it and restore it to the home office. Now what to do with the plain plywood computer desk that is in there now?
