Preston's desk

Good morning!  Hope your weekend was enjoyable.  Preston has been asking about having a desk in his room for some time now.  We sorted of put off the idea, because his room is on the smaller size and I couldn't imagine another piece of furniture in there.  But as I have shared recently, I am makings some small changes in both kids rooms, so we revisited the desk idea.  We needed it to be small and inexpensive, so here's what we came up with.


The top shelf unit was already hanging on another wall in his room, so we moved it next to bed to create the top part of his desk area.  The writing surface Grant made and then we added some accessories to finish it off.  With several little DIYs to complete this project, we ended up spending very little.  Back to share what we did to put this together soon. 

Have a great day!

  5. Love this Becky! My youngest daughter always wanted a desk in our old house but we only had a teeny spot for it and I never figured out the way to handle it. Love your solution!
