Supermarket table desk!













I am noticing a worrying pattern here... I recently mentioned in a post about my 99 dollar camera which I purchased from the impulse aisle at the supermarket checkout and now I am revealing the 2 side tables I bought at the supermarket and remodelled into a work station...HAVE I NO SHAME?!?!
Actually, no, I don't... if I can find something that I feel is a bargain and it suits my purposes, then I'm all for it!
I assembled the 2 tables (love kitset!) and remembered some timber laminate that was wasting away in the garage so I screwed it to the 2 tables, ironed on some edging to the raw edge and added 2 baskets that I had lying around...can you believe they fit perfectly!
Last night I took to one of the baskets with a white wash and am pleased with the result....but it was late and I ran out of steam so the other basket still needs to be done.
Anyway...here it is ....my supermarket work desk...voila!
Post Script: You obviously have already viewed the pictures as I posted in the wrong order and don't know how to move my text above the pics! Any help in that regard would be appreciated :o)
Note to self ......"a lap-top would look so much better!"
2nd note to self... "finish painting those stripes!!"

Hey Brismod you beat me to it-Love the picture on your profile! It is so nice to put a face to a name but I am still too scared to reveal my hideous face to the public! Great work with your goodies too, Ange. I wish I could find these kinds of things when I go shopping!
Hope you have a great weekend, Natasha.

Hi Ange, easiest way is to move the pictures to wherever you want. Simply press your enter key a few times to make room where you want the pictures to go ie. below the text. Put your cursor on the picture, right click your mouse, choose "cut". Move your cursor to where you want the pic to go, right click mouse, choose "paste" and there it is in its new spot. I find that to be the easiest way to do it on blogger.
