[UPDATE: If you're looking for sawhorses, Urban Outfitters is now selling an olive-painted metal pair for $38.]
Maybe it's their simplicity or dynamic legs. Or maybe it's that they look effortlessly classic and functional.
In any case, we've noticed a lot of sawhorses tables + desks for sale right now. The look is incredibly versatile, thanks to countless opportunities to mix & match the materials used for the legs and table top. (Back in college, we fashioned a huge but useful desk with splinter-y plywood legs and a hollow core door.) Here's a look at sawhorse tables and desks on the market now.
