"I wanted to make my great niece a sandpit for when she comes to my house but wanted to make something that would look great as well. I saw this lovely desk on my local for sale site for $20.00. I was really excited about restoring it. But when I went to pick it up I was a bit disappointed because it had been given a very deep shabby chic look. There was no way I could restore it without spending many hours sanding. So I decided that I would repurpose it instead."

Estimated Cost$21-$30

What an awesome idea! When I was a kid, I liked playing in the sand, but I didn't really like sitting in it. This would've been the perfect solution!
