Local Artists “Art Up” our Kid Desks for Auction!

We’re hosting an Auction, through midnight December 20, to raise funds to make more desks for kids in need! Local Atlanta artists were excited to share their skills to turn our wood maker-made desks into works of art.


In October, Decatur Makers began building free desks for families who have young students schooling at home. We currently have over 1,700 desk requests, and our initial fundraising effort raised enough to help us make 550 desks! As a way to raise money to make more desks, amazing community artists volunteered to transform our desks to reflect their own style and creativity. We proudly offer these original masterpieces in our online auction.

Ideas for these works of art and creativity:

  • Take one or more home to furnish your own “home school.”
  • Donate your desk back to the pool of desks for a family in-need.
  • Gift it this holiday season to someone you know who can use a new objet d’art.
  • You can also simply make a donation to support this initiative. Click here.

Winning bidders can pick up their desks at Decatur Makers, or we can deliver in metro Atlanta.

Easy Peasy. Thanks for your support!
