My husband and I built this custom desk adapted from the "X-Table," in celebration of his PhD program acceptance!
Wow, that's really pretty
Popped over to your blog for finishing steps - great job! Impressive photos too!
Ana, I am only now seeing this comment and I just wanted to let you know that I never would have begun my blog were it not for you. I stumbled upon (then) Knock-off wood and made the easy rustic console table to place behind our sectional sofa. My very first blog post was about that project! And I have felt all the more empowered ever since. So, I can't thank you enough for your kindness and vision--I hope that you know how much you inspire people, everyday!
All the best to you and you family,
I just built the X dining table and absolutely love it. Now we are in need of a computer desk that fits with my newly acquired taste for the "Farmhouse" style, and this is perfect! Thank you for building & posting this!
I absolutely LOVE this design! Everyone who has seen our DIY desk could swear that we bought it at some antique store--can you believe that? The finish is also extremely forgiving and requires absolutely no care! I wish you the best of luck on your desk, too :o)
Great job! Love it! Also great photography! :)
Thank you so much!
I love the way you changed up the top! I made the exact same one a few weeks back and was so happy about how it turned out. I struggled with the choice for the top and I never thought about making it that way.
Did you put the drawer in too?
Thanks, so much! We absolutely love this desk--no drawer though :S
