The office transformation is getting close to being finished! This project was a little unexpected. The desk I had before was just fine but nothing fancy. It was actually from my husband's bachelor pad before we got married. I spruced it up by painting it white and just recently added the magenta details to the top. I was content with it but then I realized I could have a much more glamorous desk for $10. My mom brought me a large piece of glass that a friend of ours was getting rid of due to a big move. The glass started the wheels turning for this project. I remembered that I had two wood trestle bases in the garage that I found at IKEA for $5 each. They were such a good deal that I snatched them up knowing I would find a project for them one day. I actually used two of them before when I made this desk from a door.
Anyways, on to the desk. I started with two of these...
spraypainted them gold, and added the glass.
2 bases $10
Sure I'll miss the storage but I've found by adding some desktop storage I get by just fine. Now I've just got to find a way to hide those pesky wires.
