A New Desk

The idea started this summer when we found these doors hidden above our garage. We tried to figure out what they went to but they are very small and narrow. So we brought them in and my ideas started flowing. We really needed a narrow desk but at first I was hating the idea of cutting them up.
Well I took the plunge and sawed one in half yesterday. The lighter colored back brace board is from our butlers pantry we took out to obtain a usable kitchen.

And after a little sanding and a little furniture oil I think it turned out beautiful. We are going to get a piece of glass or plexiglass to put on top of it yet. It looks even better in person.
So there is my cheap (would be free but have to buy glass) desk. And it matches all the woodwork in the house which to me is a huge bonus.
