Perfect Teenage Desk!

Perfect Teenage Desk!
About This Project

I built this desk for my 15 year old daughter. We needed to size it so that a neat yard sale find seat could fit under it. I also added supports for the legs at the bottom. It just didn't feel sturdy enough for me. Large, single drawer was painted on the inside to match the color of her walls, pulling the whole look together! Lots of fun to build!

From Plan (new): 
Estimated Cost: 
FREE
Estimated Time Investment: 
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Starter Project
Type of Wood: 
We used scrap pieces of pine lumber, making the cost of this build, FREE!
Finish Used: 
I used Glidden Cappuccino White for the main body of the desk and in the drawer, I used Glidden Spanish Olive. Both are in a satin finish.

Turned out great!

Love your daughter's desk! And I also love that it was FREE. The Hubs always wants me to throw out the scraps and I just can't, especially after seeing projects like yours :)
