saw horses

I've been trying to dream up a pretty solution for a desk.  Something functional, something that won't take up too much visual space, and something cheap and funkier than an old school parsons or some crappy excuse of a desk from Ikea.  Enter saw horses.  I'm thinking this will be a great (and custom) way to be able to make the most use out of our space and keep it from looking like an office in our dining/living room.  

Thoughts?  Ideas?

  1. I love the desk in the last pic...and I LOVE LOVE the chair. My office desk is all silver, metallic which I purchased at Ikea, but this glass top really makes THIS one look chic. Ikea also has several desk designs that include "saw horse" legs.

  3. This is a fab idea! I don't think I would've even noticed if you didn't call it out. I love the last one!
