Writing desk

My lovely daughter is a poet. She's always locking herself in her bedroom to scrawl sonnets in her composition notebook. I could have bought a writing desk, but that would have been way too easy and no fun at all. Instead I used a shelf, a couple of shelf brackets, and some deck spindles to create this functional and oh so cute writing desk. After I put it together I decided it needed a little oomph and since fabric seems to solve all of my deepest dilemmas I mod podged a bit on top. 
The perfect desk for the best little poet!

ps. I realize the pictures are crappy. Shame on me for taking pictures at night!
