When you can't go to the beach, it's nice to have a little slice of that paradise closer to home.

As much as I loved spending every waking minute of my youth playing at the beach, I knew my parents couldn't afford a three-month stay in a beachfront cottage, so I had the next best thing; a sandbox. That little space was perhaps the only reason I would go outside to play in the summer, and it was my favorite toy until a baby toad took it over as his new home — but I digress.

Understanding the multitude of fun that can be had in a sandbox, AnitaH25 decided to build her great niece one for when she came over to visit. Purchasing a $20 desk online, she was able to transform it into the prettiest sandpit I've ever seen.

After picking up the desk, AnitaH25 was disappointed with its condition and decided that it would be put to better use by repurposing it.
