About This Project

When I was given a stack of MDF sheets from a friend, I knew this was the desk I wanted to build with it first! We recently moved into my husband's grandmother's house, and have been making some improvements. We took out the dark old built in, and I replaced it with three 4' long gallery shelves, and the Parson's Desk modified to 4' long. It fits perfectly in my space, and looks so chic and modern against our teal walls. It's the perfect craft nook and workspace! I added a mason jar pendant light I DIY'd from the IKEA bulb kit, and also sewed a reversible runner to match my handmade duvet cover. The fabric is Deer Valley, from Free Spirit. I also had the glass top from the original desk cut down at Lowe's for free, and it's a perfect fit.

Estimated Cost: 
$30 for ledges, $30 for desk
Estimated Time Investment: 
Day Project (6-9 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Intermediate
Type of Wood: 
MDF and Pine
Finish Used: 
I sanded the 2x2's with 150, then followed up with three coats of semi gloss white paint, sanding with 220 in between coats.

sturdy?

Is this table sturdy enough to sew on or does it shake?

Solid

It's very sturdy, and made a great sewing table! I moved and sold it to make a built-in table in a closet, but this one was a great craft table while I had it. The fact that it's solid wood makes it better than any of the cheap sewing tables you can buy at the big box stores

Wall Color

What paint did you use for the teal walls? Love it!

Paint Colors

I used Behr's Winter Surf in the closet and Thermal Spring on the walls. I LOVE Thermal Spring! I used it in my daughter's nursery in our new home and always get compliments on the color.
