Craft Room DIY Desk Tutorial

21K
I have a small 10x10ft craft room in my home and needed to find a desk that would provide workspace and storage. After scouring the web and nearby stores, I figured my best option would be to build my desk using some simple supplies.
I purchased some white kitchen base cabinets from Lowe's, plywood for the base of the desktop, and laminate flooring for a finished look on the top. Add a little molding and it was perfect!
Two places to sit, 10 feet of workspace, plenty of storage, and one happy crafter!
I give step by step instructions on my site:

    I would definitely need a lot more cabinets! Like the idea of kitchen cabinets. will have to remember that.

    What a great idea. I could use kitchen cabinets in my sewing room to store quilts. The cabinets would be deep enough to put folded quilts in without crowding the quilts. I probably have at least 25 queen sz. quilts that I have made and handquilted in the past 30 plus years plus many holiday quilt wall hangings. What a space saver and great storage. I could even stack the cabinets.
