Simple Blue Desk

Submitted by hawaiitara on Mon, 03/04/2013 - 09:51

My daughter needed a simple desk for her room. I had leftover purebond plywood from another project and a bunch of 2x4 scraps from the Reuse Hawaii store. This made for an inexpensive desk. I based my desk off the simple trestle desk but made changes as needed to accommodate my materials. I used the plywood as the desk top and added some 3/4 flat trim around the edge. I used a 2x4 instead of a 2x6 to attach the legs to the table.

This was a quick project and my daughter loves the fun color!

Did you use just 2X4s for everything except the top which is plywood?
