Ellie is our budding artist! She is constantly drawing, crafting or creating something. She is our little protégé. With all of these art and craft projects, she needed a big work surface and lots and lots of storage. Definitely a built in desk with shelves is just what Ellie’s room needed.
We are no strangers to built ins, we (with the help of Steve) have built 4 bookcase built-ins and the mudroom. All of these built-ins were built from scratch. However, this time we thought we’d show how to build a built in desk with shelves using existing second hand furniture.
