bed posts turned desk legs

ready or not, here comes monday! so remember about a week ago when i presented a picture of 4 black posts {scroll down to see the picture} and asked what you would do with them? well, you guys have some crazy awesome imaginations!! i love it! some of my fave suggestions were: “A pen for a giant” from Min, “Magic Wands” fom HollowSquirrel, “Huge recorders for my boys” from KellyS, and “Bagpipes” from Fionna. davis and i got a good laugh! thanks guys. ANYWAYS, this is what we did with those 4 black bed posts:

easy desk makeover

pretty awesome, huh?? we chopped off the bed posts in this headboard makeover post and of course i made davis keep them…….and move them this summer to our new home. {he’s a keeper!} i had the Work Top from the Original Scrapbox  but it did not have legs. {what good is a desk with no legs??} i mulled and mulled over what to do and when i saw the bed posts sitting in the garage {light bulb!} i knew they’d make perfect desk legs. or giant bag pipes. haha

we have a little nook in our master bedroom that is perfect for this desk. davis likes to sit at this new desk to read his scriptures. plus, its a great place for our desktop that we use and love dearly collects dust. {i have a feeling we’re not the only ones that have abandoned a trusty desk top!}

    The desk came out so nice, what a great way to reuse those bed posts! The aqua chair is too cute with it – I love a nice aqua and black color combo :3 Can’t wait to hear your news about the Cameo either! Saw you tweet about it and got excited to see a blog post about it too :D

    I have to admit the desk is cuter than bagpipes bit not nearly as cool. Love the chair BTW!

    So awesome – I love that you moved it to your new house – we moved so much stuff from our last house “just in case” we figured out what to do with it. I’m inspired!
