The Weekend Projects


We're buying a new computer and we decided that we needed a new computer desk to go along with it. Our old computer desk is basically a piece of crap, so we went shopping for something new. We couldn't find anything! We checked everywhere and most of the desks were between $100-$150 and they didn't even look good. I figured that I could build a desk for at least as much as the stores were selling them for and I could also customize it to what we needed, so I took on the task. Well, it's finally built. It cost a little more than expected because I didn't know exactly what I was doing, but I did learn alot (it took a little longer than expected too). Now all we need to do is stain it and put the slide out keyboard shelf on. I'll post more pictures when the project is 100% done.
