Building a New Desk
A friend and client wanted a new desk for her new home. She wanted it like a writing desk and about 6' long. She had a picture for color that was her inspiration piece. That is about all the instruction I got on it. After searching everywhere for the perfect piece, I gave up when I found these legs and built my own.
This was her inspiration piece for color only she didn't want it as distressed as this.
These are some random legs I found while out one day at a thrift store. As soon as I saw them, I knew they would be the legs for the desk! This is after I took them home and painted them.
This is right after I stained the desktop.
Checking for spacing and overall look. Yes, I'm in the guest room, it's hot out there!
This is the final desk delivered! I forgot to take a picture of adding the rope trim to the edge of the desk top before delivery, so glad I got one here. It really finished the piece.
She says it's her favorite piece I've made for her so far and she already has another project in mind!
