Remember that project I mentioned here??
Well, we finished it!
It is a computer desk. But not just an ordinary desk. Oh no.
One with a secret.
We found the plans on our favorite building blog Ana White (no relation-but I’m starting to wish we were) and altered the plans. First, we made it shorter to fit the space we had. So instead of 96 inches long, we did 76. Much better. We also made it one board width narrower. The math part did slow us down slightly (we are not mathy), but still finished it in a day.
We added some simple hinges spray painted black. The stain and clear varnish that we used is low VOC- no odor- and just plain awesome. The color is Sesame by SamaN. I also did a little aging with some acrylic paint.
Jim came up with a fantastic idea to hide all the ugly wires and boxes and technical computery stuff (not his words, but mine).
A secret shelf!
I will show you a tutorial tomorrow.
For now, I am loving our new desk and can’t wait to build something else!! I have to say that building with my husband is so much more fun (not to mention so much quicker as 4 hands can do more than just 2) than building alone. I am glad he agrees.
