My New Desk


I needed a desk that I could use for sewing and the computer.  I couldn't find anything ready made that would work.  My dad said he'd help me build one and this is what we came up with: 
I wanted to use the cheap milk-crates that I bought at Wal-Mart for storage. I also wanted a space to put papers and other office-type stuff. This one will be perfect!

Here's some measurements if you want to make your own.

This was my last major project to complete on the craft room.  Now I just need to clean and organize everything (at least long enough to take a picture).

  3. That looks great! I would love to show you a picture of my "desk" that has my sewing machine and a MOUNTAIN of finished and unfinished projects on top of and under it....Way to come up with a solution! I love it.

  4. Looks great! Does it overhang on the front so your knees don't hit? I think it does... ! Great storage! And it always looks neat and tidy because the stuff is in boxes, perfect. Janelle @ Emmaline

    1. It does overhang. I am still working on the "everything looking neat and tidy" part:)

    1. I love, love my Bernina. I'm a complete cheap skate, but I'm glad I didn't get a cheaper one that frustrated me. I just have their basic machine, but after 16 years I have no complaints. I would suggest visiting a few shops and taking some for a test run to see what you like.

    2. Also, when I bought both my machine and serger, they came w/ free classes.

  16. I love it! I need to give my office/craft room a makeover...it's not working the way I need it to right now. You've inspired me!

  17. You have quite a unique computer table there. But do you feel comfortable when browsing the computer? There are many boxes underneath, and these might hamper your movement. I think it would be better to leave a space under the computer so you can make room for the chair.
