DIY – 60 Broken Skateboards Given New Life

Our quest for new furniture continues.  For the past many years, I’ve been cooped up at a bland, non-inspirational black Ikea desktop.  We needed color in the apartment but nothing over the top, especially with the amount of reclaimed wood and refurbished pieces that we’ve collected.
