Craft Room Makeover

The desk legs - white dowels

For those of you following my craftroom makeover, I haven't stopped working on it. I painted a second door/desktop and I just painted the second coat on the legs. These legs were recycled from a desktop we put in our office -- we didn't end up needing the legs.
I went to the hardware store today to purchase brackets/supports to secure the desktop to the wall. I was shocked to learn I would be paying $7/each! $7 x 6 = $42! Ugh! Oh well, it will be worth it in the end. Besides, that's the most money I've had to spend so far because I have been recycling pieces that I already had. I hope to assemble the desk tomorrow with my husband's help. I want my craftroom back in order! I haven't made a greeting card or scrapbooked in a month!
