Glass Top Desk Goodies

Here's a close-up look at the functional and very original desk in my office... Made with found and thrifted objects.

I gave you a little glimpse of it in my room update...
Now here is a closer look.
I used two old doors found on the side of the road, I put them together in an L shape and attached them to the top of an Ikea table. One side is for my computer, the other side is a workspace for crafting and my sewing machine. 

This is the side I use for the computer,  I added glass to the top of the door. I couldn't help but fill the inside space with all kinds of fun thrift store finds, important papers and embellishments.

I found vintage movie reels and their cases, 
shells, numbers, keys, old post cards, stamps and tickets... 
(thanks graphic fairy.)

  An old rusty barbell with a crown dish on top.
The dish has a hole in it for a knob.

I love that I can add to it and change it up any time 
I want to just by popping off the glass and switching out the inside.

  1. Neat. It's like a display in a museum.

  2. The doors make a perfect desk and the display under glass is a wonderful idea! It looks great.

  3. Love the idea and your collection!
