WOYWW 268 - I Finally Did It!

The theme on my blog this week is New Zoo Review.  And I cannot believe it is already Wednesday which means that Julia is hosting the world's biggest weekly desk hop.  Go check it out - you will get inspired no matter what type of crafting you do.

Here is my desk this week:

Once I get something in my mind - I find it hard to let it go.  I think it is genetic.  :-)  Anyhoo - I have been whining about not having enough counter space for quite some time.  I know if you've visited my site before - you know what I'm talking about.

So, this weekend with the help of this website DIY Craft Desk, I built my own version of a craft desk.  For $125 I bought 2 9 cube shelves from Lowes.  I already had the 2 6 cube shelves that I used.

I then went to Home Depot to buy a sheet of melamine board (because Lowes didn't have it).  It comes in a
4' x 8' sheet.  I had it cut to 40" x 72".  I purchased some iron on melamine tape for the edges and attached it to the edge of the board.  And melamine is heavy.  I speak from experience.  I had to load in the truck by myself.

I just love all the counter space I have and I can't wait to fill it up!

I'm off to blog hop.

Thank you for stopping by.   Check in tomorrow for more zoo projects.  Have a great day and be inspired.
