Repurposing

Meg is in need of a new desk.  Her old one has seen better days.  We have been looking around trying to find her a desk.  There are some nice ones out there if you really want to spend the money.  I'd rather not since she'll probably have it wrecked in a year or two.  So what else can we do? There is a large, old desk in the basement that didn't have a home in the new house.  I thought about it.  I wondered if we could take the big desk, remove some parts, cut down others, and get a smaller desk that would fit in Meg's room.  I mentioned it to Mickey and Meg.  Well, she started bugging Mickey about it and he found some time today to see what he could do.

He made it work.  I would like to put a shelf for a bin in the compartment with the door since there isn't a drawer.  That shouldn't be a problem.  Meg was happy with how it turned out.  Now we just need to get it up to her room, unless she wants me to paint it.
