There are two good points to actually DIYing your own furniture. Fist, the cost. The inspirational desk I found online that was very similar to this desk we built was $300.00. We were able to build this desk for under $60.00. The second reason is the dimensions. You basically get a custom, made to fit your space, piece of furniture. We made this the height and the width we wanted. It all worked out just perfectly!
This desk is the newest addition to our open floor plan living space. I needed a place to edit, work, and also do some projects if I needed to. Also it's for our daughter who needed a better place to do her homework. So far we have really enjoyed this new space! It's a great work area as well as added additional storage or office supplies that were clogging other areas of our home.
We were able to cut down two IKEA Hyllis shelves for this project and added the wood in the exact color we have throughout our home. I give you a detailed DIY video tutorial in the link below.
I hope you are inspired!
