$10 Sawhorse Desk {Dwellings by Devore}

My work office is moving to a new building at the end of the year and I need to buy new office furniture.  I’ve been looking for a new desk and am in love with this William Sonoma Home glass top sawhorse-legged desk.

Little problem- big price tag, around $1250-$1450.

But look at what Mrs. Devore did.  She made one for $10!  

I think it’s just awesome, especially with how cute she styled it.  
You can visit her blog to see how she did it HERE.

    It's unreal. I LOVE the gold and the use of pale purple on top. So darn cute. Off to check out more details.

    She did a great job!! I adore the look, but I personally need more storage (I am a paper piler/hoarder). 😉 She really did style it nicely!

    Love that! A desk like that would also look really great with those saw horses painted a striking color or Rub 'n Buffed gold or silver. Great idea.

    Just $10? She's a genius. I'm finding myself really liking glass furniture now, it's so clean and simple and doesn't add bulk to the room.

    I loveee this! I agree- the gold is perfection (: $12-1400 is way too much to pay when you can make one for $10!

    I want that desk! Love the simplicity of it and it's beautiful to look at!

    wow that's amazing, so gorgeous! I love sawhorse-legged desks! (though didn't know that that's how they are called!)

    Great looking. Another one to look at is West Elm's collapsible sawhorse dining table $299.

    wow, great match to the original. Painting the legs would get it even closer. Totally worth it for the price difference!!
