At first I thought this desk by Kelly at Back to Domestics was covered with real postcards, until I took a closer look – it’s paper from Paper Source!
While you could definitely use real postcards, what is nice about using the paper is that you will get a more smooth finish than you would with the thick postcards (which would be especially rumpled after going through the mail. Oh, and I love the word rumpled).
Kelly did a beautiful job and organized her postcards in such a fun way . . . the finished piece is awesome. Check out Kelly’s vintage postcard desk makeover with a tutorial.
