i was moving my sewing desk today when i realized, its a craft in itself! i made my sewing desk with a pal over 2 years ago and it has served me well. i guessed on how big it should be based on my room at the time and i'm glad i made it so big. i bought the little baskets and then used those as guides for the shelves. its not the most beautiful thing, but its mine and i'm proud of it. we didn't have a table saw so we had to cut everything by hand. what that means is that it is all wonky. it work for me!
