I started creating the furniture for my new craft room by making the Easy Three Cube Benches I found here. I modified them so that my cats could lay on top and look out the windows. The cube benches gave me the confidence to design a printer stand. Using Ana White's technique of "build the box" and then add the rest, I designed a custom printer stand I am so very proud of! After the printer stand, I moved on to the final piece that would complete my craft room, a modular desk with plenty of workspace to complete any craft I want. I modified each module a little to keep with the theme design of the room. I created three modules. The last one being a bookcase that is a modification of the Modern Craft Table bases. I used better quality Oak plywood for the desk top, and good pine and whiteboard plywood for the modules.

For the modules I used Valspar Furniture Paint in ultra white. For the desk top I used Minwax Simply White stain and then Minwax Dark Walnut over that to create the "driftwood" style look. I sealed the desktop with about 5 coats of Minwax wipe-on poly.
