Hope you’re ready for a picture overload! There were a lot of steps to installing this bad boy and I plan to show you every one of them Let’s start with what to buy. This is the hardware we bought: (click the links to find where I ordered them): Since they were in zinc finish (because it was cheapest), we spray painted all of the hardware black. Disclaimer: we have an old piece of carpet in our garage that we use as a drop cloth. The box rail also had to be trimmed to fit the door. (reciprocating saw) to cut it. In order for the door to sit far enough off the wall, we needed to add two 2×4′s for the box rail to attach to. To install the end cap, you just have to wedge it in the end of the box rail.

Now you can attach the hanger part to the door. DIY furniture - hello, I'm a lost space by ash nel.

So that picture above was slightly altered, here's the real deal: And a before shot when there were no tower shelves: The story is my sister-in-law B and her husband P have a new baby, Lily, in a one bedroom apartment in NYC and although there is plenty of space, it was the use of the space that got me going. And of course all the inspiring pictures of other things people had made on Ana White's blog which made me think I could make something great too. On a recent visit (and my first visit to their place) I saw the layout and my mind got working.

Really Messy Desk Design Works for Real Working Spaces

The reality, however, is that most of us will just make a mess of it one way another. What if instead of trying to fight it we simply embraced that side of ourselves that refuses to keep a neat and tidy workspace? This clever (if awkward) desk is designed with the inevitable mess in mind, with nooks and crannies for all kinds of odds and ends to be stored in creative ways. The storage spaces in this offbeat desk design are left open to the world and lend themselves to more casual forms of filing and haphazard placement of whatever work implements you might be using.

Perhaps the best part of this postmodern design is the off-balance look of it, as if it simply grew and expanded to accomodate your needs in every direction possible.
