Welcome to Saturday Nite Special, the multi themed DIY link party!
* Home Decor / Gardening
* Crafts, / Sewing / Recipes / Printables / Blog tips
* Theme of the week
Every Fri 7pm to Sunday 11 pm Pacific.
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! 🙂

Great office ideas Donna! Have a wonderful weekend!
Thanks for hosting, Donna! I always LOVE seeing your office! We just finished our Office Desk, we put barn doors on the top. I’m thrilled with it. Now I think I need to add some junky things to it!
Hi Donna, love the new streaks, an artist she is. Thanks for hosting, always happy when I can share.
Love the offices, Donna! Thanks for hosting!…hugs…Debbie
Hello Donna: Thank you for hosting the party tonight. I love those offices that you showcased–some of them remind me a little bit of steampunk. I am getting ready to redo my hubby’s office in this style, so I love the ideas and inspiration in those pictures!

Thank you so much for hosting each week, Donna! Your office is so cool 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend!
My office/guest room is “full of junk” right now…but not in the good way 😉 Too many unfinished projects stashed there!! When I finally get me dream office/studio someday…I’ll be visitng yours and Patina White’s for inspiration!! I linked up a little junky ribbon storage idea in HOme decor. Thanks for hosting 🙂 Laurel
Patina White’s office is gorgeous. Thank you for hosting the party. I put my entry in the office section, but if it’s not “officey” enough you can move it up the Home Decor. I had thoughts of photographing my entire office for your party, but then I’d have to dust.
I’m sorry that I accidentally linked up my 8 Can Taco Soup in the Home Decor section. I promise I read the group titles before I started linking up, I just wasn’t paying attention very well when I linked that particular recipe up and now it won’t let me delete it. Please don’t hate me.
Your dufus fan
Got linked up a little late, but wanted to share my front porch before the weather changes around here. I hope you are enjoying the last of Summer:-)
Thanks for hosting! I linked up two recipes for the price of one! 😉 Pico de Gallo & Gucamole:
Thanks for hosting. Have a great weekend.
Debi @ Adorned From Above
Always love the round up of things here at your party. Definitely heading over to check out that office.
PS Next time I am at my mom’s, I am going to find the meat grinder and steal that idea. She will never know it is missing…..
Another great week of ideas and inspiration. Thanks so much for the time you put into the party!
I always love seeing your junk’n, Donna! And, I love the one you featured … it’s a gift! Thanks so very much for hosting !!
Great feature!!! Thank you for hosting!
Thanks for hosting this awesome party! I know I’m late, but I finally got my post up tonight. Recycled skid and wood from an old deck (which I’ve used a lot of already and have tons more to play with!)
Can’t wait to check out some of the other shares!
I love your ideas for setting up an office.
I would never have thought of the ideas you used.
Have a great day.
Makeovers of junky are not bad at all. Thanks for this informative post. I might try making our junky things to be useful just like what you did.
Great idea’s wish I could find cool stuff like this. Need a place to seek and find. Any idea’s?
Hi Patti, I suggest to google antique / salvage yard / thrift stores in your given area. Or just hit garage sales / auctions. It’s really all you can do. Good luck on your hunt!
