About This Project

It was an unused corner of the playroom and I decided to put it to use with a computer station with an area for the kids. The desk top is stain grain ply, stained a satin dark walnut. Body is paint grade ply, painted white. On the walls I used whiteboard/dry-erase paint over a magnetic base so the kids can draw on the walls and hang pics with magnets, and added a cork board to the right. Built the cabinet for the computer and printer using same wood with a sliding shelf. This turned out to be one of the best things I've done in the house, the kids do their homework here and we use the desk all day long! A really cheap project that has very few parts. With paint, wood, stain and hardware its a $150 weekend project. I didn't use any plan here from this site but I've taken a lot of inspiration and tips!

Well Done

Great use of space & I like that you used painted and stained wood together. It looks very professional.

Could you mind providing the dimensions of your desk? It looks like the perfect size to fit our needs!

Looks great, you can paint

Looks great, you can paint and stain prior to putting together saves on taping everything off and possibility of bleedthru of tape. Amazing job and design.
