DIY DESK WITH CHAIR
I have a loft area that was underutilized. I decided to create an inexpensive desk using wood crates, an old wood board for the top. I found an old chair at goodwill with a disgusting cushion so I DIY’d it😁
I used white chalk paint on top of desktop. I then dry brushed multiple colors lightly to give dimension. I finished with a light coat of wax.

I stacked the crates vertically and horizontally. This made the desk higher. I secured with nails underneath.
I scrubbed the chair and removed the old cushion saving the plywood for the new cushion and fabric. I spray painted teal. Then I recovered and secured the cushion using tacs.
Before dirty and nasty chair but I loved the height.
After removing fabric.
Love spray paint!
2 coats of teal.
This was a two part project done at different intervals. I love my new desk and chair. I can store paper, labels etc inside the crates.
