10 Simple Ideas for Casual Crafters


Custom Desktop

If you need a big work desk or work surface at home but don't want to spend the money on a nice one, here are some easy instructions for making your own. All you'll need are two sets of vintage two-drawer file cabinets -- look on Craigslist for great deals on used ones -- a hollow-core door from a home improvement store, some decorative paper and Mod Podge. The file cabinets serve as your desk base, so place one on each side, the width of the door. Mod Podge the door with the colorful, decorative paper you picked out, making sure to get out any wrinkles or creases. You only need to do one side, but make sure you wrap it around the sides so it's fully covered. The end result will be a large, inexpensive, one-of-a-kind desk for your home office.
