old school desk

best way to display an old school desk in the lawn

Not sure I'd want to put it out where the elements would/could get to it. I'd definitely would put on several coats of marine varnish (non yellowing) to protect it from wet. Sue

It might be a good idea to use a few pavers as a base for it so that the base/legs would not be in direct contact with the dirt. Sounds interesting, though, and a great place to display a plant.

Good idea!

DH was trying posts to see if they would go through as I had been having problems getting them through. Of course the one he did the desk about did go through. Go figure! Any way I actually do have an old metal desk out in the yard as a planter. It has been there for years. I had to take the wooden seat off cause it fell apart. I had an old kettle with plants where the seat was for a long time. Now there is just the desk part left.
Thanks for your input tho.
