We are not really fans of taking something old and modifying it, but we could not help ourselves with this little desk. A lot of us will remember it or something similar from our childhood, bot might forget the shoddy worksmanship of the laminate wood top. We have improved it. This time the wood is solid walnut and the base has been powdercoated to something a little more exciting. The desk can be used as a little side table, or a place to put ones key by the front door.
