The Desk that Wasn’t

Its days were numbered.  It was only a matter of time.

It didn’t do ever anything to anybody.  In fact, it was a model member of it’s kind and did what ever it could to please its owners.

But that didn’t matter.

It never matters when a Krazy person is involved.

Namely this krazy person~~

Her name…


Yes, this krazy, candy sniffing, rebel of a girl.

That poor desk.  Never saw it comin’.

Neither did he…

deer in headlights

Poor unsuspecting creatures that they are…



But, as with all traumatic experiences, life goes on..


Sometimes, for the better…

How’d that mischeivious mastermind accomplish such a feat?

I’m here to tell ya.

Step 1.  Buy an ugly frosted glass/MDF desk from Office Max to “please” your significant other…

Step 2.  Wait 7 years for the “new” to wear off…

Step 3.  Decide you can’t live with out a white board anymore and don’t want to pay a ridiculous amount for one from some unknown website off the internet ‘cuz it’ll look ugly and too much like a regular school room and that is NOT what you want yo’ Office/School-room to like like ‘cuz yur too much of a freak to do that. Whew!

Step 4.  Really… learn how to not write run-on sentences…

Step 5.  Grab a saw.

You might want to use a jig saw.  Or you figure, you can do this with a trim saw, ‘cuz you don’t have a jig saw yet…

Saw those legs off and pull that u.g.l.y. desk apart.

Step 5 1/2.  Ice your poor arm so it doesn’t hate you in the morning…

Step 6.  Rejoice ‘cuz the desk-lover of the house isn’t incredibly miffed at you…  Kissy-time…

Step 7.  Take one of these poor, discarded former desk-holder-uppers and screw it into the studs on your wall of choice…


Step 8.  Have some muscle help you mount that new, krazy awesome White Board on top of that former desk-holder-upper…

Drill straight through the back of the desk into the support and screw in tight…


And Voila, you have yourself a never-been-seen-before addition to your super BOLD, pink school-room/office!


Instant gallery shelf for yur cool Black and Whites…


Then you can put up a leftover shelf you scored from Ollies, the land of the bargain-junkie…


And set some stuff on it…


Namely, Candy…
(Don’t underestimate the stuff when it comes to
grouchy mini-males…)

And when you go to fill that jar up, you can take a big whiff to calm yur nerves…

(Zero calories that way…)
