Desk Construction

Desk Construction

After spending many months shopping for an appropriate desk for our office, Matt and I were frustrated with the selection and the prices.  We began looking on the internet and ran across a website (www.ana-white.com) that offers simplified building plans for all types of household furniture items.  We found a desk that we loved, made some simple modifications to the plans, and decided we’d try to build it.  It took us a while to get it completely finished because we could only work for a few hours each weekend, but we are finally proud to say that it’s 100% finished…and we LOVE it!

now we need some stain…

completely finished!

Matt and I are super happy with the way it turned out and we think we did fairly well for our very first construction project.  We are hoping to finish the office off with a bookshelf to match the desk, some curtains, and a rug for the floor.
