Recently a great mentor and friend of ours from Los Angeles asked us to make her a cool desk for her office... It turned out to be the perfect opportunity to use some awesome pieces that we've been finding.
The top is made from pallet wood and bondo.. Galvanized scrap metal was used as a writing base and wooden rulers were used as trim.. Metal side bracing came from an old sign.. Plumbing piping became the legs for the desk and the foot stool. The swinging basket was from a vintage refrigerator.
An imperfection in the wood became the perfect planter.
A nice reminder and a personal touch..
Rachel, thank you for everything! We hope you enjoy your new desk! xo
