A New Workspace Place

It's taken me about two weeks to get this all put together with only being able to put one coat of polyurethane on a night and waiting for the top to set completely before I start piling things on it.  But it's ready for it's unveiling... my new studio/workspace/desk.

It started with a lot of DIY inspiration:

1. Manhattan Nest / 2. Young House Love / 3. Camillestyles / 4. Workalicious / 5. Katherine Martensen-Larsen / 6. Lovenordic Design Blog

And ended with one very successful, budget-friendly home project:
Inspiring, right?
Here's the breakdown:

  • Repurposed Kitchen Cabinets - $42
  • MDF for Desk Top - $80
  • Hardware - $18
  • Steel Edging - $15
  • A New Can of Kilz - $7
Total for gigantic addition of workspace to our home: $162
(I used left-over paint for the cabinets and surface.  Also not counting the sweet jig saw I bought because I'll get to use that again.  Soon hopefully!)
Check out the lake view!
