I like a BIG worktable. I also need a durable (and possibly replaceable) work surface. Last weekend I increased my workspace and added a little DIY charm to my studio by making my own work table.
- two filling cabinets
- one unfinished door (I got mine from Lowes)
- stain (I used Minwax dark walnut)
I liked the look of white cabinets under a dark wood surface so I used a dark stain for the wood. And when I get it covered in paint, ink, crayon and scratches I'll just flip it over. Also, since we are a military family, I don't have to worry about the movers dismantling and destroying the desk each time we move.
I also realized while doing this project that I my old desk chair that I got at a garage sale years ago had stopped rolling. So, I treated myself to a grown up, awesome chair to go with my DIY desk.
