Take an old crate and bring it inside for an end table in your living room. Id re-paint it to go with the theme of the living room. Every time you redecorate, a quick and simple paint job brings the crate up to date with your living room!
One thing that stands out on this desk is the attention to detail. The computer shelf and cord management really make this desk look great. The use of the wood paneling pulls the room together and also hides the electronic clutter.
