|What do you do when you're not quite 13, and you can't just go buy the desk you want? You build it yourself, of course. ArtGirl is also ToolGirl.|
|Everything is assembled with screws, and this photo, with the desk top and shelves removed for painting, pretty much shows everything you need to know for construction. Just remember to use a square and pre-drill your screw holes.|
Working with salvaged materials is such a great celebration of abundance, and a fabulous way to create really personal and functional items. Even if you aren't 13, and can drive yourself to the mall, may I suggest you hit a few garage sales instead? ArtGirl and I absolutely promise you that building stuff is way more fun than buying it.
