Schoolhouse nostalgia...

So here's something I never thought I'd write a blog post house nostalgia. I don't know if you've noticed, but there is a kind-of odd new craze taking over the blog world......that's right. I was skeptical at first, but I have to admit, the industrial style school house look has definitely caught my attention. Basically, everything you remember seeing in your school classrooms (except half dissected frogs..what?.. that's really what I remember) is taking up shop in the interior design world, except with a twist.
Such as:
Globes...I'm obsessed with all of these, especially the chalkboard ones, and I can't wait to DIY one for myself or possibly a client (and yes that is a sign of things to come):
Along the same lines, maps have also made a return...with a fun twist...
Then there are these:

Be still my heart. These chairs are the ones used at lab stations in high schools (obviously these ones are painted a fun bright color...although now I think schools should paint their stools fun bright colors, science would have been way more fun if I got to sit on these). And only $31-$44 each, here.
Test tubes...I've written about these before, and they are not going anywhere anytime soon:
I have seen them used for everything from storing herbs, to a hanging vase, and more.
Chalkboards...these have been back around for awhile, but they've been blowing up even bigger in the last year or so:
What do you guys think? School house nostalgia...yay or ney?


  1. Diggin' those lab station chairs, what a fantastic idea. Those YHLers really know what they are doing :)

  2. Can't wait to see what you do with a globe :)


Nothing makes me happier than seeing your lovely comments...except maybe wine...yeah wine makes me happier...but still I love your comments :)
