I was scrounging around the hardware store last night, looking for a pair of sawhorses for woodworking projects, when I stumbled upon these Crawford 38" adjustable folding sawhorses. They're solid steel, painted in school bus yellow, and can be adjusted from 25 to 34" high. Because of their heavy duty construction, a pair of them supports up to 2,400 pounds. All this for under $30.

I picked up a pair for my project, but later realized that these would make a fantastic set of legs for a home office desk. The all-metal construction and bright yellow paint is reminiscent of more expensive modern tables.

Pair them with a wood desktop to create a fun, modern work surface. For extra stability, the tops of the sawhorses are predrilled to make it easy to permanently attach a desktop. And because the height is adjustable, they would be a great option for a desk in a kid's room.
