Being that the kids are now back in school, I’ve been thinking of ways to spruce up my son’s desk in his room. I mean, the one I need to make first. Then enhance.
I sure wish I had a new one to show you today (which had been my intent!) but until I do, here are the two I have made out of junk along with matching accessories.
Farm table styled pallet desk via Funky Junk Interiors
This all wood desk made from scratch resides in my downstairs office / sign shop. It’s one massive stretch of room, which fit the picture window perfectly. To the right you’ll see a big tall picket that organizes telephone needs.
Accessories: a coke crate organizes the pens and pencils, while the other side houses ‘the ironing board’ light. And the files are neatly tucked away between two brackets and a random chunk of wood.
pallet wood sawhorse ladder desk
This desk was created with sawhorses for legs, a ladder for the frame and pallet wood screwed to the top. I’ve attempted to modify it many times over the years but I keep coming back to this. It just works. 🙂
Accessories: junk galore. A meat grinder and big rusty cogs offer a place for the pens and pencils and the wall unit behind the desk holds the rest.
Patina White’s junk styled office
But there is one junk styled office my mind always wanders back to. And that’s Beth at Patina White. This is not an office you can fully appreciate with one room shot. No way.
Beth’s collection gives repurposing a new meaning. Lots of thought has been put into every nook and cranny and it’s worth your time to click and check it out if you’re after ideas. This stuff just makes me happy! 🙂
