Off to the thrift store where I found the above utilitarian desk.
But I encountered another problem - everything I had on the desk kept falling backward! Ugh. The solution? Make a back for it. I am no carpenter, but I am resourceful so I dreamed up this little design. And if I may boast a wee second, I was really excited to have mitred the ends. See those diagonal cuts? I did these by hand with a little mitre box. Ooh fun.
You can see those soup cans up there? I used them for awhile, but decided over the weekend to get myself some of those heavy glass votive candle holders from the Dollar Tree. And then because I have soooo many art supplies and pencils galore, to even label the holders. Now I am really grooving along, finding what I need in record time and having no excuse to immediately put away everything easily when done using.
(Yes, I bought a label maker at Office Depot. Cool fun!)
