Out with the old, and in with the new.

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. As a new Grad student, I have been pondering the thought for a while of recycling my desk from college and finding a new one that would give me more desk space. This inspiration was just what I needed. So I took off , full speed ahead and ran with the idea of creating a new desk that would be one of a kind. 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!

The Inspiration:

The Old:
I promise, it was usually not this messy.

The New!:

Another BIG thank you to Tom who built such beautiful sawhorses for my new desk. They are the focal point of the desk and absolutely amazing; the desk would not be the same without them. There are even shelves for me to place baskets in order to help with filing and organizational needs.

I have had that bulletin board above my desk since freshman year. It has not left the room, but it is no longer over my desk. It also received a face lift with the design.
