If you like woodworking, build yourself a desk out of reclaimed lumber, add some details or adornments from the craft or hardware store to add style and make it unique.
Made this column for my mother's home using PVC pipe, a wood box, and a molding ring from the hardware store. I wanted to scale it down a little, but she wanted it to be large.

Maybe you've already gotten ideas like I did from the DIY shows, such as covering an unsightly wall with fabric, as I did in an old home we were renting. Or putting a couple of suitcases together with a couple of leather belts and adding feet to make an inexpensive coffee table.
For the seastyle, I topped this chest off with a rustic frame that I made with twigs for the ship picture and a shell-framed (with shells I actually collected, of course) mosaic made from a broken mirror. Come to think of it, I think I did have seven years of bad luck, so I wouldn't advise it.
