I, TOO, CAN BE PINTERESTING!
If you need a little more space than your tablet to spread out your work, but can't afford an expensive desk, why not tackle a little DIY this weekend? The desk above was built in less than an hour for under $25! How?
1.) I took two bookshelves I was contemplating either tossing in the garbage or burning in a summer bbq and gave them new life by painting in a high-gloss paint. **if you aren't married to a particular color, check out the "discarded paint" aisles at both the Home Depot and Lowes. These are drastically reduced gallons of paint people have had specially mixed but never purchased. Instead of paying as much as $50/gallon you can walk away with these pre-mixed colors for as little as $5! #paintdeals
2.) I bought an unpainted, flat standard door at the Home Depot for $10, sanded it and painted it a lighter tone.
3.) By placing the bookshelves facing OUT I created clean, organized spaces for files, office supplies, etc. Attach with small screws so door doesn't slip around then tweak #paulsgreatideas
