Remember when I had this PLAN to build my own desk?
And a good part of that plan was to just buy the wood, glue it, hammer it, and be done?
And remember when I mentioned building a “desk” I really meant a table, because I wanted to stand, so the desk wouldn’t be traditional with drawers or anything like that?
Well, Operation Desk quickly became a
bad structurally unsound idea for me to continue. Until my super awesome friend Julie volunteered her husband Scott to build my deskable! 🙂
Yes, Julie cooks and Scott builds things #PowerCouple
It has taken me far too long to write this post, because nothing I write seems to adequately describe how thankful and grateful I am for Julie & Scott, and how much I LOVE my deskable! Seriously, the vision in my head was nothing compared to how FANTASTIC it looks! I mean I had a vision, and Scott surpassed it!
Look at this craftsman ship for the back legs:
And the back and front legs:
Isn’t it GORGEOUS????
*the desk is 100% level, my floors are not 😦 The original location for the deskable was perfectly level, but it was too far from both the electrical outlet and the internet/phone outlet. So, the corner (where the deskable is now) was the only option. This means it is not on a level surface, hence the cardboard and paper wedges under the legs. I’m working on something better, but until I stain/paint, this works now!*
I still need to stain/paint it, and I’m going to paint it white. This way, it’ll match, and it’ll match the normal sized table I have my printer on. Part of me wanted to wait to post until I had time to stain/paint, but I realized that probably won’t happen until this weekend or next weekend.
I LOVE it! If Scott decides to open up a Deskable Designs store, I’ll be sure to let you know!
See, wasn’t it worth the wait?!?! 🙂 I’ll answer for you: It was!!
