This is my desk before the makeover. I am blogging on a 15 inch hot pink Barbie computer. I have a much larger monitor that I have not hooked up. I went to buy a monitor shelf a couple of weeks ago and was surprised at the cost. Of course my brain went on RED ALERT! I could make a monitor shelf with my superior wood working skills, or I could assemble some junk and screw it together, slop on some paint and blog about it. The second option won out.
I went to the garage and found the perfect old cabinet door. Just the right size. I got this one from Craftdictator.blogspot.com who is one of my favorite bloggers. She scored some free doors and drawers on Craigslist and shared with me. You should visit her blog and check out the table she and I made with the same haul.
I removed all the hardware and nails and was ready to create.
I had found four short legs at the Restore a while back and they were just waiting for this project. I screwed them into predrilled holes and they were perfect.
There was a gap that I did not like. Back to the garage where I found some small molding that I had used on another project.
Some paint and glue and I was very happy!
Here is the finished project. It is the perfect size to slide the laptop under.
