Good day,

I am in need of a desk. Doesn't have to be fancy. Would like to spend less than $50 and I am able to pickup.

DIY! I make coffee tables from pallets. It's some work but they are cool and "islandy". Free lumber that won't rot or get termites. OR does STX have the no-flea market? That's a great place for furniture with a great cause.

Yes, I have been pondering a DIY thing for awhile. I have seen some nice mahogany limbs on the side of the road and thought it would be cool to make a desk using those for the legs. I also reuse wood pallets for many things.

I know you have a little garden, did you know you can use wood pallets for a veggie box. Just staple weed block cloth on the bottom and off you go. I put some drip irrigation over it and works great. They last about two years before they start to disintegrate.

Ps- still looking for a desk since I have way too many projects and not enough time to build my own.

Have you checked the Animal Shelter Flea Market, Woman's Coalition Closet to Closet and Uniquities?

Where do you get the pallets?
