My boys, ages 11 and 8, fight constantly while doing homework and I have been wanting to get them there own "old school" desks for their rooms.
I picked these up for $15/each!! WOW!! You cannot purchase something like this new for $15 nor can you build it for $15 as solid as they are... And I'm RECYCLING!! They each have the front opening for books/storage...Perfect. Here is a before of one:
My oldest just wanted his to be darker, simple and "old fashioned" like his little old soul! So I just darkened it up with my newest secret weapon!

My second son is a young "free spirit" and wanted his blue... I, of course, would not leave it as just solid blue, so I worked some magic.... It's even more adorable in person.

And I am pleased to share that homework time is MUCH more peaceful which definitely makes for a more harmonious home!! All for the price of $30 and about 30 minutes of my time!!
I have many, many more projects that I came home with and will post my before and after shots to share with you all!!
Thanks for looking!
