I hope you have all had a great week!
I am so excited to share my latest build with you guys. I think this might be the final piece for my oldest son’s room, and I am in LOVE. I might even steal it for my own room!
I wanted a desk that didn’t take up too much space, and that would also grow with him. Restoration Hardware has the perfect desk! The only problem is the $600 price tag. Ouch! That price is just a bit out of my shanty budget!
So… I hit up my sweet friend Ana White for some easy DIY plans to make my very own. She delivered! I was able to make a knock off version for just around $50! Yah. That’s right! 50 bucks.
Here is how it turned out…
This is a super easy build! I will show you a few of my steps here, and you can see the full set of plans over at Ana’s site!
I did use my very favorite tool on this build…
Here are my pocket holes for my bottom shelf supports.
And here they are attached to my legs…
I did a straight cut for both of my shelves.
I decided to countersink my screws at the top of the legs. I knew that the table top would cover them, and this seemed like the best route!
Here are the legs just before I added the top shelves.
For my table top I used this project panel from Lowe’s and I LOVE it!
I used Gorilla Glue Wood Glue on all of my joints, and I also use it to attach the legs to the top.
That is it!
To finish his desk I used my very favorite…
This stuff is great… Dries in less than an hour. Just make sure you wipe it off within 5 minutes or so!
We get LOTS of questions on what we choose to protect our finishes with.
This is my favorite. It really shows no brush strokes, and has a soft natural looking finish.
You can find both of these at Lowe’s!!!
That is it. Such an easy build, and again… Did I mention it was only $50. Wow. Makes me love it even more!
Here are just a few more pics…
I love it!
