I found this old army field desk at a tool sale........... and I also have one that does not have the table attached to it, I want to paint that one pink and leave the rusty metal natural. I will use it in my craft room for storage. 

 any comments welcomed thank you

I say, we can pain, we can paint
Everything out of control
We can paint, we can paint
We're doing it from wall to wall
We can paint, we can paint
Everybody look at your hands
We can paint, we can paint
Everybody takin' the cha-a-a-ance


Seriously though, great find and if you do go for the paint be sure to post pics! :)

My husband has one of these without the table. Now I get the complete picture. Thanks for posting. Posted: 2:54 pm on August 24th

Would love to see a pic of it when you're done with it.

Thanks for sharing!
