Last week I shared our new computer desk area.
The desk was simple to make and cost less than $100. We started with a piece of 1 inch pine board cut to our desired length. We gave it a good sand over all sides. Once sanded, Curt attached a piece of 1 x 4 inch board to the back of the pine board. This is how the desk will attach to the wall.
We stained the pine with Minwax dark walnut stain.
We wanted a nice dark, rich color so we did 3 coats of stain.
This is the hardware we used for the desk. Four flange pieces, four 8 inch pipes, two 4 inch pipes and four 45 degree elbows.
Attach the pipes together to form two shapes like this.
Attaching the desk to the wall was definitely a two person job. Long clamps also helped immensely.
First, Curt attached the 1 x 4 inch board to the wall with screws.
Then it was time to attach the pipe brackets.
Simple and minimalistic.
The 1 x 4 inch board below the desk is the perfect place to attach all the necessary, ugly computer stuff.
Until next time….
