This past fall, I made arrangements to move into a studio outside of our home to sew. I have two desks with shelves on the sides in our "get crafty" room, but I wanted to leave one, and I still needed another. I had no desire to buy one at Pottery Barn, but considered it. I looked on-line to find a comparable desk and remembered bookmarking these plans by Ana White a while back. I sent the link to my husband and asked if he could make this desk. The directions looked so good, I thought that I could do it after learning how to use the table saw! Alas, this was an opportunity for husband to play, I was not allowed to mess with his toys, just as he is not allowed to touch my scissors. Well, he busted this out in 2-3 days after work and I love it!
Jimmy said that the instructions are written well, so, I looked at her blog a little more and saw that she had a book being released, YES, I bought it. Yay, more projects for "us."
I only took pictures unfinished with my phone, it's painted and full of shit now, I'll take a few pictures of it in use soon. I also only captured one photo without daddy's helper in it, but, I really wanted to show his achievement.
I love all of the shelves and the big top, it has been a great addition to my atelier and everyone is impressed that my husband made it, so am I.
Jimmy made a few picture frames from the book and I want to make stuff together, but, what? I think I want to make a coffee table. What would you want to make?
