When I was home for Christmas, I was flipping through the December issue of Southern Living and came across an idea for a new desk. The desk consisted of an old door, fabric to cover the door, glass to protect the fabric and old sawhorses to set the new desk top on.

With some help from my local handyman, Tom, the idea and inspiration became a reality. Below is the inspiration, my old desk and then my new desk!
