We have been working in the basement on and off for a few months and I decided to carve out a space for our blog work. We also set up a little photography studio for my tech guy!
We built a simple desk that suits us and gives us plenty of space for our individual needs. We still need to add some finishing touches but we are getting there.
We made the desk from metal/aluminum sawhorses and four 2 feet by 6 feet planks of wood.
We used joiners to pull the seams together on the four separate planks of wood. Then we attached the sawhorses to the planks with metal screws. I used leftover wood to trim out the front and sides of the desk to give it a more finished look. I did not countersink the screws on the trim pieces which adds a more industrial look to the piece. Once that was complete I finished it off with barn wood grey stain.
We recovered an old bulletin board with burlap, added a few whiteboards and hung our wire rack organizer which was a gift from two of our biggest supporters (Thanks Kim and Sandy!)
Check out our personalized mugs from Santa! He also gave us the Cricut Expression 2. We are still trying to figure our how to use it. I will leave that up to my tech guy to figure it out and explain it to me!
