Do you remember the dining table I fashioned from a bird cage my husband had trashed? Read/View that post HERE. Well...if you do remember that table, then you may remember me telling you how Shawn will throw anything out with the most minute of flaws or simply because he hasn't a use for it and I, lacking any pride, admitted that I've dumpster dove in my own trash.
A few months ago we got a container of furniture in which included a large secretary desk. Behind the doors there should have been an insert with divided spaces and drawers for letters, stationary, etc. It was not included. Fortunately we sold the desk for what we'd expected to get out of it had it come with the insert. The following month another container arrived from the same place and the insert was put on this container. I could tell Shawn was going to take it right out the back door and toss it in the dumpster but I sweet talked him out of it. For all of you amazing DIYer's in blogland and beyond, this isn't a spectacular re-do or makeover so I hope you're not too disappointed, but simply taking something that was intended for one thing and using it as another. Immediately upon seeing this desk insert I knew what I'd do with it:
1) Add some hooks to the back and hang it on a wall in my store.
2) Fill it with transferware
3) Anxiously await the arrival of a like desk so I can swipe the insert for myself.
A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others.
