The ladies over on A Beautiful Mess have done it yet again. They recently bought a new house to use as their studio (genius!) and they are room by room and project by project renovating the house and making it their own. Their most recent project is this standing desk. I have never thought of making my own desk, let alone making one that is so high and mounted on the wall! But I have to say I just might give this a try. Here’s why.
It’s high! My new baby girl won’t be so new pretty soon and she will be crawling and walking and no doubt terrorizing my work space among every other room of the house. With a desk like this high standing one, everything would be well out of her reach and safe and sound on my desk. Also, with it being high, it would take up less floor space and leave more room for her to crawl around and play with toys or for me to use as storage. Heaven knows a crafty girl can never have enough storage. Another great thing about a high desk is the stools. I love the way tall stools look and even though I don’t currently have a need for bar stools in the kitchen, if I ever did someday, the stools used at my desk would be easily transferred to the kitchen for extra seating.
Of course, as with any other DIY project my favorite part is making it my own. Customizing a desk to fit my exact needs sounds amazing, doesn’t it? I can make it deeper or longer, a little higher or shorter, I can paint it, or add some rad faux concrete for a super unique finish. The possibilities are endless! I really love the look of the desk they made. It’s super minimal, clean, modern and it doesn’t take up too much space in a room visually.
