I just have to post this because I want to brag. The desk I had been using was way too small for me -- but it was free. So my husband who is new at woodworking found a desk design on This Old House and offered to make me a desk.
I got to pick the color - my favorite color, red, and we poured a few coats of epoxy on the top.
Please disregard Rocket who was rolling around on the floor at the time.
