We have a glorious pile of unique wooden items, that yes .. may be  have chewn apart by animals, covered in dust and chippy paint, cracked  and split and looking sad ....... but when you have an imagination,  those are treasures waiting to be put together to create a masterpiece!  Like ingredients to a glorious recipe!
Spindles, half rat eaten  milk crate, an old shelf off the curb on trash night, an old farmhouse  door and some custom cut glass to drop into the inset door panels to  create a smooth top for writing on ...... VOILA!
Just a close up of the chair we decided to paint up after we made the desk :)

We had a student with a passion for unique farm and country decor ask us if it was possible to build her a desk out of random things to create one fun style! OF COURSE!  Pretty much our favourite kind of customer! open to creation!  We toured around our scrap wood piles for re-purpose projects and pulled all this together for a desk that is making her friends quite jealous I hear!

I am in chronic pain from having 6 spinal fusions from scoliosis. I once loved doing things like you are doing now. I have three sons and I have a happy life but I just cannot do what everyone else can do anymore. Iam so glad that you can do all this pretty work though. God bless you !

I've been trying to get it cleared off enough to post it so now you have me motivated. I love your work and seem to be drawn to your style. I look forward to your future posts. Thank you.
