When it came to having a workspace I really wanted to be on the main floor so that I could access my desk easily. This is really such a simple desk to create and because it is custom you can make it fit in any space by determining your table top size and adhering it to the file cabinets. One of my favorite things about this space is seeing the wall art that hangs above the lamp on a daily basis. I love the fact that we have been able to utilize space, I am still centrally located to the hub of our house, I can play music throughout the main level, the desk fits my needs for having all of my files in one easy to access place and the space is versatile! By utilizing this extra nook in my dining room for my desk now I am just feet away from this goodness!
This item will keep all your cell phones and other devices organized, charged and ready to go without the usual cord clutter. If your office is in need of space to store files this desk and file cabinet will do it with style!!The desk is crafted with a two drawer stack on each side and keyboard drawer or pencil drawer in the center. For pictures of all the different types of wood click here or visit our related links page. These are some more examples of items we can craft for you to make your office YOUR OFFICE!!!
Now her bedroom is a long narrow rectangle shape and eventually there will be a set of bunk beds in there replacing the existing bed.
So after much searching when I finally scored these two filing cabinets at the Salvation Army, it was time to get started on their makeover. Make that I took photos and my husband who is a way better spray painter than I am painted them.
We started with a trip to Home Depot where we met a great guy named Al who worked in the lumber department (who also had his own furniture making company) who was a Godsend with his help and suggestions on how we could effectively mount an 8 foot desk without brackets holding it up to the wall. We laid out the blocks of scrap wood and the 2″ strip of wood to the underside of the maple desk block.
When it is that long, usually you either need a bracket, a cabinet or some form of support in the center under it so it won’t cave and sag.
The scrap blocks of wood were also there to add support and they would be resting on top of the filing cabinets.
The bonus of the 2″ strip of wood was that it also concealed these scrap wood blocks.
We then placed the desktop on top of the filing cabinets and marked where one of the 3″ strips of wood would go under the desk, mounted to the wall. The desktop was then securely screwed down into the 3″ strip that was now mounted to the wall. Another important finishing step we did was to put rounded trim at the raw unfinished edge of the desk. Eventually we want to put an EXPEDIT type of shelving unit to the left of the desk vs the TROFAST unit that is currently still there.
Which leads me back to the evidence as to why I couldn’t show a finished shot of this desk in her room for the past while. There was Christmas art work and decorations that I was begged not to take down before January.
So whoever tells you that their kids rooms always look like they do on Pinterest (or even in this case, the finished desk shot), they’re lying.
I don’t think the mess photo is really that bad… Paul went skiing a few weeks ago, and I was alone for a whole week and did no laundry and did not make the bed… and just threw stuff on the floor… and it was great. Although her room looks like it might be possibly painful to walk through without paying attention… however? I certainly hope mom and dad got some serious screams of excitement and maybe some handmade thank you’s for putting this fab desk together. I think you need to start thinking of writing a book or something, as your work really is worth the read! As much as I would love to take credit for that, that was part of the really great advice given to us by the amazing coworker at Home Depot who really went out of his way to help us with the design process.


I have a friend whose sister got so fed up with her daughters room that she took the laundry and basically rolled it into a ball and wheeled it into her room one day. This is a great idea, we sell colourful filing cabinets here in the UK and have seen many of our customers try this very thing over the years for home offices or study, Now this is becoming even more popular in the modern bright office environment. Love this & your princess is completely right, aqua is gorgeous & completely of the moment! It needs a purge, a good scrub, some organizational systems put in place, a new desk chair and oh, a new paint job. However, once you fill it with seven people and all of their stuff I found that I still had to get creative when it came to certain things. I didn't want to be in a remote place of the house that left me distant from the kids and never able to go to my work space unless the kids were napping or in bed. In our case we just used some double stick foam tape to give the wood less of a wiggle, but didn't want to permanently glue the wood down in case we ever wanted to use those table leaves again. Who would have thought that two file cabinets and some table leaves would be so functional? I can grab whatever hot drink sounds the yummiest that day and then get right back to work!
I give all of the credit to that smart master mind that I married who has such great ideas and then I go to work making those ideas pretty.
One or two of the cabinets can be made with utility drawers instead of file drawers to fit your needs!! On this page are some examples.As with most of our items it can be custom crafted to fit your needs.
We actually had the desk completed in September of last year but I haven’t been able to show you the final product due to some evidence I will present at the end. She had turned 5 and all she does is draw from the moment she gets up to when she goes to sleep.
We used Rustoleum Aqua because apparently the Queen of I love the colour Purple, has a new favourite colour.
So that is essentially what this 2″ strip of wood flipped on its side does towards the front of the desk.
Half to create a more built in look, the other half to prevent markers from flying and decorating the wall on their own. We don’t own a router to do a bevel (the nice smooth rounded finish that normally appears at the edge of desktop) so this was a cost effective way of doing so.
The honest to God best part of using trim at the edge of the desk, is that the markers and crayons do not roll off the edge and onto the carpet, leaving a trail of destruction. Or maybe they just don’t have my daughter who I am convinced is going to wind up somewhere in a fashion house with a million sketches around her desk. I wish I had the space to do one for myself but that’s the longest bedroom in our home. And when I post something that was random or didn’t take long, they get good reviews. We basically explained our vision and he gave us a bunch of suggestions including that one, which is by far the most cost effective and in terms of design it looks really nice. I was just telling my husband that I have an idea that turns a filing desk into a table for our print-making studio, using wood on the tops of the cabinets to make a table. The idea is definitely for her and her sister to share it when we have them in the same room together. As much as I love pinterest, really, how often do we get a chance to see kid’s rooms being actually used by kids?
I am like my kitchen is bad enough but now people’s washer and dryer combos make me want to put out my non-existent fancy plates on them and have a candle lit dinner. As an example a customer bought 2 Purple filing cabinets and Topped it off with a Granite effect Kitchen style worktop available at the local DIY store. Whether you just need to finish something really quick or you prefer to work at home, you still need a proper place to do that.


It’s the only finished space in our basement, and you have to walk through unfinished space to get here, but Dan and I both use it pretty regularly. I looked at different stores for desks but wasn't impressed with the drawers and filing space or should I say lack of filing space.
The file cabinets are individual stacking units up to four high.These units are constructed of oak, maple or birch lumber and cabinet grade hardwood plywood (No particle board or mdf !!!)and stained to your color specifications!!! I forwarn this is going to be a very picture heavy post, if anything to help anyone who may be interested in making one for themselves. We also wanted a floating desk, an 8 foot long one no less. So we said Ok, time to build one.
Right now it’s back to normal only now she discovered that the filing cabinets are magnetic and there are copious amounts of Valentines magnets all over them. I may just have to try this for my crafts table I’m looking to make for our basement. I saw a post the other day where someone had spent the money to put up glass tile in their laundry room. Not cheap but a great one off design – but it just goes to show that with a bit of imagination there is no limit to the colour combinations.
There’s plenty of paint left and shades of blue are supposed to be conducive to creativity. Ok, so maybe not the first place that you think of when picking out your office space but it has worked wonders for me and has been the perfect spot! At first I was appalled that someone would spend that much money on a _laundry room_ then I though about how much time I spent in mine and realized that I really should be putting in a fantastic media system, maybe a hot tub, definitely a beer tap… I’ve had it all wrong all these years!! Suitable for women more than for men, the Chantal desk features some feminine details like the retro finish and the soft lines.View in galleryThe desk features two file cabinets, one on each side. The walls are an odd, drab tone that I swear was matched exactly to one of those standard beige outlet cover plates. I had to keep track of all of that paperwork amongst the other normal day to day paperwork that comes through la casa. I tried to keep it simple in its contents so that it wouldn't be an eye sore in the dining room. There are cutouts in each compartment to feed the wires through with space behind the station to hide all the wires. A big plus was that because of the central location it is also like I have a built in music system since I can turn music on my laptop and have the sound hooked up to some tiny speakers that I can hear throughout the main level. There is also hooks on the bottom for keys.This piece is crafted in walnut and birch for contrasting wood colors. We will custom make these in a variety of wood species and stain it to your color spefications.Please contact us for pricing and order info. Grab those cute storage bins to put in the 4 or 5 divided sections intended for books that may solve your dilemma on the plastic tower to the left! I’m going to try and find some paint I have on hand already that will work for that too.
I desperatly need somewhere to stash important papers out of little ones reach and yours is so pretty as well as functional. It also has two deep drawers, for other items you might need to store in there.The desk I available in an antique white finish, gently distressed by hand or a dark espresso finish obtained through a multi-step process highlighting the wood’s natural grain. Both models have brushed-iron-finished hardware for an industrial and, in the same time, antique look. And if you work from home and need more storage and work space, you can also opt for the Snack \Cabinet and Top, File Cabinet and Top or for the Chatham Bookcase.
