So here's the 'before' of the desk, originally a 'standard issue' from a college dorm room (and some other junk I didn't bother to move for the picture):
And now the afters! I'm so excited...this is the first project like this that I've done (so please don't point out all the flaws; I see them and I'm ignoring them!), and I did it by myself too!! (I even used a power tool! That's a big deal for me, as I'm actually afraid of them.) :)
I'll be linking up at these parties!!!!
and here...(I couldn't find a party button - sorry!)
