Trash to Treasure: Mrs. DeVore's High Impact $10 Desk

I love a project that looks like it cost a million bucks but actually comes in at far, far less. In Mrs. DeVore's case, she took a few simple and inexpensive pieces and put them together to create a desk that looks high end… When her mother brought her a large piece of glass that was headed to the trash heap, Mrs. DeVore suddenly remembered the IKEA sawhorses she had picked up for $5 each. She could have just plopped the glass on the sawhorses and called it a day ... but Mrs. DeVore wanted a more polished look. With a little gold spray paint on the sawhorses, Mrs. DeVore was able to create a new desk that looks much more expensive than the $10 it took to create it. Pairing the desk with a couple of gold accessories contributes to the luxe look — as does the zebra print wallpaper on the Mac. Check out the details on this project — Dwellings by DeVore: $10 Desk.
