Crafting/Office Desk

Submitted by KRhoads on Wed, 05/29/2013 - 19:39

I've been on the quest to find a desk that can serve as a multipurpose table. I wanted a slide out to store my laptop so the desk can be cleared off for my sewing projects. I finally stumbled across the two filing cabinets at a flea market ($35 each) much cheaper than I could find at any store ($100+ each). They were a little beat up but still functional. Nothing a new coat of paint couldn't fix.I really like the Farmhouse Table but already have a beautiful wood dining table, however I figured I could take some inspiration from the design for my desk. I used 5 1x6x6 boards for the desk top and some 2x4s and 1x3s for the supports.
