This is the desk that I built, with some help from my son and husband.
But, we made do until we could figure out something else.
Then, I seen the above DIY desk and I had a vision, I just needed focus. So..
Our new desk looks great in our bedroom/office. Makes this small space a little prettier, and it's a lot more functional..Having all that space for files and storage is such a plus. I really love it.
One thing that I must note here, the 2x4's were not truly 4 inches wide, more like 3.5 inches wide. therefore my desk top, which needed to be 24 inches wide, the depth of my file cabinets, was only about 21 inches. So...I have space on the backside, so I will be purchasing one more 2x4, sanding, staining, placing on the backside and attaching to the others. I had no idea to check the width of the wood....good learning experience.
