As many of you know, my family recently made a major move from Sicily to Alabama. I've been unpacked for 2 weeks and am now faced with the daunting task of organizing. In theory I like to BE organized, but in reality I am NOT. Our 4th bedroom is massive. It could almost be one of those home theaters. Instead it is the play/computer/craft room. My corner was getting a little out of control with opened boxes as I tried to find something. My desk in storage was pretty much ruined, and I was planning on using it for the computer and getting my craft table back (computer is now on that).

Yesterday, I had an epiphany as I tried to figure out what to do about a desk. I could run out and buy one, but want to wait and see what comes out of the claim process. While thinking about this, I remembered in our garage sits 5 unfinished doors. Yes, you read right, doors. We re-did our last house and had planned on replacing the doors. Easier said than done. For some reason we did not yard sale them before we moved to Sicily and so now these doors, all 5, sit in our garage. I went and inspected them and realized they would fit in my cubby. Here is what I came up with for a desk. It fits right on top of my plastic drawers. Perfect size to stick a chair under too and long enough for me to spread out when I work on something. I still a work in progress but at least it's a start. So, if you need a work space. Look around your house and be creative with what you have. I bet you'll be surprised!
