Shipping Crate Desk

Kendra at Creative Ambitions got a call from her neighbor, one day.  The neighbor gave her a huge shipping crate!  Kendra could imagine lots of possibilities for that amount of wood, but the one that was most appealing was something that would be just for her:  a desk of her very own!

Kendra did some pretty creative things to the shipping crate to transform it into a desk.  Along with some additional wood for trim and a rustic paint finish, one of the coolest things she did was decoupage brown paper bags onto the desktop to create a worn leather look.  The end result is truly amazing!
