Several years ago I saw an episode of The Christopher Lowell Show (remember him?). He showed how you could use a door across two saw horses as a desk. I made my version of the desk, complete with a faux painting technique. He even showed a picture of my desk during his letters from the viewers segment...y'all didn't know I was that famous did you? This has worked well for my computer desk for quite some time. I had been using this small 4ft X 2.5 ft table as my craft table along with an iris cart and some bins for storage. In the midst of all my household projects I got the idea to use my big computer desk for the craft desk...lots of room to spread out, but still no storage. I found the greatest file cabinets/drawers at Target. http://www.target.com/Coastline-3-Drawer-File-White/dp/B000MRD5A8/ref=sc_ri_1/602-3922306-9809428 They had free shipping so I had them sent right to my house (which was really smart because they weigh 60 lbs each). The first one took me almost 2 hours to put together, but the 2nd only took an hour. I think they turned out pretty good. I may have to get a couple more of these for my computer desk. I put them in place of the saw horses and VOILA:
As you can see, there's still lots of stuff that needs to find a better home underneath, but this is great for starters. My first task once I got my new desk set up was to put my paper in the file drawers. I love these little labels for my SU paper that I got on Ebay a few years ago. I will need to get some more folders for all my PTI paper.
Here are a couple more cards I made yesterday:
Recipe: Cardstock SU wild wasabi, Stamps SU Happy Everything, DP and buterfly sticker K and Company Wild Saffron collection, ribbon PTI dark chocolate.
This next one was my try at Taylor VanBrugen's sketch challenge a few weeks back. I must be hungry for neopolitan icecream with this color combo.
Recipe: Cardstock PTI dark chocolate, DP Making Memories Comopolitan Collection, Stickers Sandylion Essentials, sentiment SU Sincere Salutations.
Have a great weekend, and go make something!
