Yep, I made this!

This is one of the projects that I've been working on for the last couple of weeks. I am in love with this secretary's desk. I need a little desk of my own to keep all my "girl junk" off of the trucking desk.


I got the plans off of Knock-off Wood. If you haven't checked out this girl's site, you should. You'll be addicted.

It's really nice since I can fold up the door and my mess is hidden inside. I was a little chicken to build the drawers like the plans called for though. (well, actually I was too tired. MDF is heavy!) But I found these awesome file folder boxes at the Container Store. They fit perfectly on the bottom shelf.

I don't know if you can tell it or not in the pic, but i painted it a deep purple. I am in love with that color right now. I found some awesome jewelry at Pier One today in the same color:)

Here's a shot of it open...

There's my favorite coffee mug on the coaster Slone made me for mother's day. My new little sew kit from Border's that I scored for $7! It has like twenty Amy Butler patterns in it plus some fabric! And my ipod and my calendar.

And some of the books that I've been reading.

Matt says that I need to quit building furniture. My house is too small. But I am addicted! I'm trying to figure out what to build next;)

You could build me one of those desks…in purple…or maybe a deep red. I am so in awe of you, Hez! It is really so spectacular. Great job! Could you bottle up some of that motivation and creativity and send it my way??
