Quick Write- Table to Desk

I guess it's true when they say, "one man's trash is another man's treasure." This piece above was apparently made from found objects. I find it amazing how people can look at what seems like nothing and make something exceptional from it. It amazes me how someone would even think of making such a piece by simply looking at a few pieces of scraps. What I love about the piece in the photo would be the different functions of it, but it doesn't take up any extra space. One second it's a regular table with no "wow" factor, and the next it's transformed into a cute little desk used to study and create wonderful things. I can imagine this desk in the basement of an old man's house. It reminds me of those old men who "waste" their lives creating all sorts of things. Hunched over at the desk, equipment all sprawled out, just inventing until he gets it right. This is a piece of furniture I would love to recreate one day.

  1. this table is awesome, wish I could have one! and I also think is amazing how people create different and creative stuff from "hopeless" things. Different opinions and points of view can make/find treasures
